After pivoting to an online program in order to quickly respond to COVID-19, the Never Apart team has been working hard for several weeks in order to prepare the center and its facilities to welcome you back, while also providing a safe and enjoyable visitor experience. We missed you, and look forward to having you back!
In accordance with the recommendations issued by the CNESST (Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité au travail), Centre Never Apart has implemented the following measures to ensure the safety of visitors and employees:
