The Standards Council of Canada (SCC), Health Standards Organization (HSO) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA Group) are working collaboratively on developing two new national standards for LTC that will be shaped by the needs of residents, families and Canada’s LTC workforce.

The bodies involved in the development of these standards want to hear from Canadians and what matters most to them when it comes to long-term care. The responses will help shape what an optimal future state of LTC ought to look like in Canada.

Provide your input by taking the survey.

Seniors, families and individuals in Burnaby are in need of phones, tablets and computers (laptops) to stay connected during COVID-19. Burnaby needs your help! Many people in Burnaby still do not have a device that can connect to the internet.

THIS IS NOT OKAY!!!

Since COVID-19, Burnaby Neighbourhood House (BNH), in conjunction with Digital Access Burnaby, have been seeking donations of used tech devices and have recently received a donation of tech devices from Microsoft and an anonymous donation of $1000. These are amazing contributions! But too many people still need devices.

The Digital Acess Burnaby fundraiser has been created on GoFundMe to raise more funds for this important project.

For more details on donations and how you can also donate your devices, please visit the Digital Access Burnaby GoFundMe page.
