Neighbourhood Support

There are many in our community that will need support during this outbreak. We encourage you to rally together as neighbours (and neighbourhoods) to support those at highest risk. This includes the elderly, immunocompromised and those with underlying medical conditions.

Below you will find a list of neighbourhood resources. If you need additional support, please consider the below forums and familiarize yourself with our community resources. If you need medical support, please call your family physician or 811.

If you are concerned about a neighbour (in any capacity), please give them a call and/or try to track down a neighbour that might know them. Please do not enter their home. In case of emergency, call 911.


If you are aware of additional resources in your neighbourhood and/or would like the below updated, feel free to drop us a note at updates@bowen.fyi. Thank you!
