PCPC eNews: Things to watch for from PCPC in April

Coming soon is a Tip Sheet for centres with updates you need to be aware of for Bill 148. We have been sharing lots of resources about this big change over the last couple of months. See below in our e-newsletter for March for some new webinars where you can find more info as well.

In April we will be reaching out to all our members to touch base! Over the month we will be calling the centres- if you prefer to schedule a call at a set time, would like us to reach out to someone specific (staff or Board member) or would rather that we chat via email instead please contact Shannon, PCPC’s Executive Director at info@pcpcontario.org this week to set that up. We look forward to speaking with you all!

The PCPC Board and Staff would like to wish the families and staff at all our member centres a Happy Spring & Happy Easter.
