Coronavirus Cancellations Notice

DSRF has cancelled or postponed several events to help slow the spread of Coronavirus

At the Down Syndrome Resource Foundation, the health and safety of our clients/students, their families, our employees, volunteers and supporters is the number one priority. Considering the continuing news regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in accordance with the recommendations of health officials, DSRF has decided to cancel or postpone a number of upcoming events, including:

  • Our New Parents Series workshop on toileting with Hina Mahmood (Mar. 14) – to be rescheduled
  • The World Down Syndrome Day/25th Anniversary Family Skating Party (Mar. 20) – cancelled
  • Kelowna workshop on Positive Behaviour Support with Jillian Baldwin (Mar. 28) – to be rescheduled
  • Up the Down Market Toronto (Apr. 23) – to be rescheduled for the fall

All individualized DSRF services (including speech and occupational therapy, one to one reading and math, mental wellness and positive behaviour support) are already scheduled to be off from March 16-27 for Spring Break. Out of an abundance of caution and in support of community efforts to slow the spread of the virus, for all group programs the scheduled one-week spring break will be extended to two weeks (March 16-27).

We are continually monitoring this situation and are in contact with the appropriate agencies to stay on top of the issue. If there are any further postponements or cancellations, we will advise you as soon as these decisions are made. Thank you for your understanding and continued support as we do our part to #flattenthecurve.
