In response to the Ontario government’s announcement of extending emergency measures to stop the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have extended the closure of all our offices until further notice. We will reopen when it is safe to do so, as per directions of local authorities.
Thanks to our team’s resilience, we have leveraged our digital tools to continue offering our diverse services to vulnerable newcomers while engaging with clients on multiple levels. Our bridging programs in media and communications (BEMC) and in mental health (BREM) will continue on schedule and will be conducted online.

On Friday, the Centre communicated that we would be modifying our operations but keeping our offices open. However, there have been many developments over the last 72 hours that have encouraged us to rethink our approach.
Following the lead of provincial health authorities and city officials, we will be suspending in-person services for the period of Wednesday March 18 to Sunday April 5, 2020.
Our Information Sessions will remain Online only. Please click on our MNLCT webpage mnlct.org/covid-19/ for updated information.

On Wednesday March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 crisis a global pandemic. Following this announcement, on Thursday March 12, 2020, the Province of Ontario announced that it would be closing schools for two weeks after March Break. This means that publicly funded schools in Ontario will be closed from March 14 to April 5, 2020.
As a result, all our Information Sessions are ONLY ONLINE until further notice.
