Armenian community stands shoulder to shoulder during difficult times

We are going through difficult times and facing an unprecedented and a highly uncertain situation. All Canadians have a duty to practice the measures advised by Public Health Canada and our medical professionals who are sparing no effort to keep us safe and healthy!

However, let us not forget those who are often the most in need. For this reason, the ANCC affiliate Armenian Community Centre’s across Canada have taken emergency measures to help the most vulnerable, especially the senior citizens in our communities that are totally helpless and have no one to tend to their basic needs.

Kindly find below all the necessary information that you will need to contact your local community centre, should you or a family member need urgent assistance. Please also refer to the links below for more information and constant updates on what the government is doing to keep you and your family safe during these difficult times.

PLEASE NOTE, THAT WHILE EMERGENCY HELPLINES ARE OPERATING, COMMUNITY CENTRES, CHURCHES, SCHOOLS AND OTHER COMMUNITY ETABLISHMENTS REMAIN CLOSED FOR THE TIME BEING. ALSO, ALL EVENTS FOR THE FORSEEABLE FUTURE ARE EITHER CANCELLED OR POSTPONED. REFER TO YOUR LOCAL ACC’s SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS FOR UPDATES ON EVENTS.

For more information, please refer to the links below and ANCC’s COVID-19 Resource Guide.
