Since the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic, the National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC) has been doing our best to navigate the response and support our network of over 107-member Friendship Centres and Provincial/Territorial Associations (PTA) across the country. We are paying close attention to the daily updates provided by public health and are abiding by all of their recommendations.

With the safety of our community members and Movement in mind; our priority is to support Friendship Centres and PTAs in whatever they need and in whatever decisions they make. We are in constant conversation with them at this time, making sure they remain supported. 

COVID Alert app

Together, let's limit the spread of COVID-19 and prevent future outbreaks.

COVID Alert helps us break the cycle of infection. The app can let people know of possible exposures before any symptoms appear. That way, we can take care of ourselves and protect our communities. Learn more about how the app works by heading to the Government of Canada website.
