More information is available here on Castanet and we will post further details as they become available.
There is a COVID-19 financial help guide available here that asks 7 to 10 questions, and shows a customized list of benefits that may help at this time.
As thing start to open up after the worst of the COVID-19 crisis is over, here are some frequently asked questions that CLBC put together regarding the people we serve and their families. Check it out here.
