Do You Suffer from Mask Ears?

Masks aren’t very comfortable. They don’t do much for your wardrobe or fashion sense. But, masks are now required by law in all indoor spaces in Ontario and where physical distancing can’t be maintained. Embrace your mask ears, for the health and well-being of our communities!

All community stakeholders must play a part if Ontario (and Canada) is going to keep its economic edge. If you are a local landlord or business, please consider applying for the Canada Emergency Commercial Rent Assistance today.

The Positivity Wall

Here at the LEHC, like everywhere else, things are very different lately. This may be the first truly global pandemic in history and it seems to have caught humanity off guard. The news cycle is constant covid-19 pandemic articles and people may feel like they are running out of things to do. It is definitely important to stay up to date with the latest news about recommendations and laws from medical professionals and government, but it can also be nice to add other things in the mix every once in a while.

The LEHC has created the positivity wall. The LEHC team has set this up in what would normally be our busy resource centre to give space for positive thoughts and ideas in a very uncertain and scary time. We will share a video with some of those messages soon. Please, offer some of your own in the comments!

We've Got Your Back!

Seeing the positive side of things, this has also been a good time to plan and make sure that the LEHC has an effective and helpful response regardless of circumstance. Stay connected.
