Covid-19 Office Closures and Modified Services


March 24, 2020

The Board of the Elbert Chartrand Friendship Centre has made the difficult decision to close the front doors of the office building to the public.

This has been done to ensure that the community and the staff of the Elbert Chartrand Friendship Centre
is doing all that it can to limit the spread of Covid-19. (Coronavirus)

A number of our programs remain open with modified services and with limited person to person contact.

During this time staff will still be available by phone or email to provide services between the hours of 8:30 am-4:30 pm Monday to Friday.

You can reach us by phone at 204-734-9301 during regular business hours or by email at info@elbertchartrandfc.com

We thank you for your patience in this difficult time.
