In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic led to the closure of all DIVERSEcity sites. We pivoted quickly to provide services to our clients remotely via email, phone and web options. As of September 2020, we have developed a DIVERSEcity COVID-19 Safety Plan to guide our careful approach to reopening DIVERSEcity’s physical locations, following WorkSafeBC recommendations, for some in-person services, specifically child care, education, health and one-to-one counselling settings.

If you have any questions or want to make an appointment, please contact your DIVERSEcity case worker or employee directly. For general information, phone 604-597-0205.
In addition to following the general safety guidelines above, volunteers must complete the pre-shift Volunteer Health Check Survey on the day they are to visit a DIVERSEcity site or perform any in-person service:
The survey is not required if you are volunteering remotely only.
In addition to following the general safety guidelines above, all employees and contractors must complete the pre-shift Employee and Contractor Health Check Survey before visiting a DIVERSEcity site for any reason, and before providing any in-person service, including on-site appointments and community-based accompaniment.
Employees must also assist their clients in completing the Client Health Check one to two days prior to their scheduled appointment.
Employees should follow up with their clients verbally again just prior to the scheduled appointment to ensure they continue to meet the safety guidelines. Please also remind them to bring their own pen, documents and mask. If they don’t have a mask of their own, we have some disposable ones available at reception.
Please note that the staff entrance at DIVERSEcity Community Campus is through the back door via the parking lot, while clients should enter via the 76 Avenue entrance.
