We want to thank our staff and learners for their efforts, hard work and commitment during this trying time the past few months. They quickly adapted to working at home by learning new ways to study and finding new ways to connect with each other. Good Job!!

We still don’t know when we will be open for face-to-face contact, but we will keep you posted.

The office will be closed from July 20th to August 3rd for our summer vacation. We will be back August 4th. Enjoy your well-deserved holiday!

If you are interested in upgrading, please give us a call at 705-647-4040 or email us at sbhughes@eastlink.ca.
