What to do if it gets too Hot
Extreme Heat-whats new

The heat dome last year appeared suddenly and that led to some serious outcomes for many. The Province, the Federal government, regional governments and we here at CRHC and CRD, want to be better prepared for more heat related events. The following links will give you some important tips on how to stay cool if the heat spikes, and what to do in case you’re at risk.

We're moving - changes in effect starting Monday, June 20

CRHC reception will move from the entrance off Lee Mong Kow Alley by the Centennial Square Parking Lot to a temporary reception area located in the former Starbucks location at the corner of Fisgard and Government. If you are visiting our offices over the summer, look for new signage to direct you and be patient while we work out the kinks associated with the move.

COVID Office Protocols

After our move to our new temporary location, our office doors will remain open, but space will be at a premium. As a way to ensure physical distancing in our limited reception area which will be shared with the CRD’s main reception, we will be accepting only one client, or three individuals from the same household at a time and you will not be required to wear a mask. We strongly recommend appointments, but we can accommodate walk-in rent payments. If you arrive at the office without an appointment, or see that someone is already in the reception area, you'll be asked to wait outside until the person ahead of you has left the building. We thank you for helping keep us all safe.

If you require a face-to-face meeting, we recommend that you call or email the employee you wish to meet with to make an appointment. When you enter into the general office area, beyond the reception desk, you will be required to wear a mask and potentially sign in using our visitor tracking sheet.

We are continuing to deliver essential services while following guidelines and orders set out by the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) and other governing bodies, including WorkSafeBC, and Island Health. For more about the CRD’s response to COVID-19 please visit www.crd.bc.ca/covid
