AWO Services During COVID-19 Pandemic
The rapidly changing situation and conditions due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic have resulted in the AWO Refugee and Immigrant Service suspending all in-person services.
AWO’s highest priority is to protect the health and well-being of our clients, staff, and the wider community. All of our main locations and itinerant location services will be closed until further notice.
Temporarily suspended programming includes:
- In-person appointments;
- LINC (Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada) classes;
- Information sessions, workshops, and all in-person/group programming; and
- Income Tax Clinics
Settlement workers will be working remotely to serve you via the phone and online.
