Ontario has declared a second provincial emergency to address the COVID-19 crisis. The province has issued a stay-at-home order to reduce mobility and keep residents safe. The state of emergency is in effect on Thursday, January 14, 2021 at 12:01 a.m. for 28 days.
CTN is well prepared as an agency to navigate this situation and is closely monitoring and following government and public health directives. We will continue to support clients during the provincial emergency through our virtual-first service delivery model. Services are provided virtually (phone or videoconferencing) if possible and in-person services are provided when necessary.
We encourage you to visit the Ministry of Education or your school board website for the most current information on how this announcement impacts elementary and secondary schools.
As we navigate the ongoing pandemic together, we encourage you to stay connected with your child’s service provider to address any needs or concerns. Our ACCESS intake team can be reached at 1-866-377-0286 for general inquiries and our SBRS intake team can be reached at 1-877-972-7277 for School Based Rehabilitation Services related inquiries.
