Important Announcement:  Easter Seals House

Like all charities and service providers, Easter Seals BC/Yukon must make changes in response to the impacts of the unpredictable and unanticipated Covid-19 pandemic.

The effects of the coronavirus pandemic, which is evolving by the hour, have already significantly curtailed our operations. Despite our efforts to explore multiple alternates, we have no choice but to make the very difficult decision to suspend operations at Easter Seals House for approximately three months.

As our organization is unable to provide its regular service to the community at this time, we are intending to offer the use of the Easter Seals House facility to the government and other agencies in an effort to provide an additional critical care resource for them as they manage the pandemic and its impacts.

We will continue to monitor this health crisis and share our ongoing updates and resources on this page.

Our hearts go out to you amid the devastation caused by COVID-19. Please stay healthy and be safe.

Lisa Beck, President & CEO
