Health Updates

This webpage will be updated as the provincial health situation continues to develop. We encourage Canucks Autism Network (CAN) members, staff, volunteers and supporters to follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram & Twitter) and check their email for ongoing updates on our programs and events.

CAN Safety Plan

Latest Update: Aug 30, 2021

The Government of BC has made two major announcements in late-August regarding a) mandated use of masks and b) providing proof of vaccination in public, indoor spaces.

  • Both orders do not apply to children under the age of 12.
  • Proof of vaccination does not apply to youth recreation.

We are still determining exactly how these two new provincial health orders will affect Fall programs beginning this October. Please note that CAN continues to recommend the use of masks for all individuals involved in CAN programming — both indoor and outdoor.

We will update all members registered for Fall on the exact measures required for each specific program environment in the weeks leading up to their first session.

Safety Plan for Family Experiences

We are gradually re-introducing Family Experiences. Our safety protocols are detailed in full in our 8-page Safety Plan.

 

All families must read the full document and agree to the protocols before their enrollment is confirmed in any CAN Family Experience.

CAN Restart Plan

As expected, our upcoming year will look much different due to the safety, financial and logistical challenges created by COVID-19.

As we approach Phase 4 of the CAN Restart Plan:

  • In-person programming scales resumes to pre-COVID levels with safety protocols in place (eg. Kelowna, Nanaimo and other areas as funding allows)
  • All pre-COVID programs resume
  • Limited virtual program offerings for members who prefer the platform and in remote communities
  • Large fundraising and third-party events resume pending local health orders

We want to hear from you.

Help us better understand your level of comfort and interest in returning to in-person programming. Complete our brief, 5-min questionnaire.
