Dear ISSofBC friend,
 
We are pleased to announce that delivery of limited in-person services on an appointment-only basis will begin in most ISSofBC offices and locations by the end of this month.
 
Settlement services – including multilingual settlement supports for Government-Assisted Refugees, refugee claimants, and other immigrants; volunteer connections; and youth and women’s programs – are available for appointment-scheduling in all locations except Maple Ridge beginning July 27.
 
Resumption of in-person Employment and Self-employment services and LINC training – which continue to be delivered online or by phone – will be announced later.
 
Delivery of all in-person services are strictly by appointment only. All offices will remain closed to drop-in services.
 
New or returning clients can book in-person service appointments by contacting the centralized intake resources listed on the ISSofBC Programs during COVID-19 webpage.
 
ISSofBC has spared no effort to ensure a safe workplace for staff and clients to return to. When booking and later, arriving for appointments, clients will be expected to answer a number of health-related screening questions and provide critical personal information to facilitate virus contact tracing should that become necessary. For everyone’s protection, they must also arrive wearing facial masks (both adults and children over two years old). Please check out the ISSofBC Return-to-Workplace Safety Plan.
 
We continue to closely monitor guidelines and directions from public health authorities and by doing so, look forward to a successful and healthy reopening of all the services our clients and the community have come to rely on. Thanks for your continued support and please stay safe.
