As the weather changes and fall draws in we are looking forward to bringing our programs inside. With that change, the health and safety of all participants and staff are our top priority as it has been since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

On August 23, 2021 the government of BC announced mandatory vaccinations for people to participate in non-essential services. This requirement applies to all adult participants and staff at New West Family Place. 

As we head into fall, and our programs move to our new indoor location at Qayqayt Neighbourhood Learning Centre, we will be requiring proof of Covid-19 vaccination for all adults 12yrs and older as your enter the facility. Proof of full vaccination will be required by October 24, 2021. 

If the Covid-19 Vaccination requirement is a barrier to your family, please contact for information about our appointment based outdoor playdates option. 

New West Family Place will continue to uphold the health and safety standards as set out by the Provincial Health Officer; please note that details may change. You can find more information about the BC Vaccine Card, including how to get a card, at

Thank you so much for your continued patience and support as we navigate these changes. Our staff have a responsibility to follow and abide by the regulations and protocols set out by the provincial government, and we thank you for your cooperation. 

Finally, we encourage everyone to receive the Covid-19 vaccination. Together we can stop the spread of Covid-19 and get back to all the in-person programs we enjoy at New West Family Place.
