During these challenging times, it’s important to remember the safety of our friends and neighbours BUT also celebrate the great things happening in our region. That’s the reason why we launched #YQGStandsStrong.

As of 12am on Thursday January 14th the Province of Ontario has declared a State of Emergency, which impacts the service levels at all establishments in the region. To learn more click here.

Travel within the region is not encouraged, and those are encouraged to stay home and stay safe until it is deemed safe to begin leisure travel again.

In the mean time, people are still contributing. Still engaging. And still doing great things for our friend, neighbours, and those that need the most help right now. Please continue to share the good message on social media – we’re continuing to look through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for those using #YQGStandsStrong and we’ll continue to share those messages – and flood social message with positivity and good news during these challenging times.
