Understanding Our Mandate: Admission Criteria Explained
At TCC, we extend our services to those experiencing:
Domestic Violence involving intimate partners, e.g., spouses, common-law partners, or dating relationships, including LGBTQ couples.

A Look Back: Recent Events & Achievements
We have embraced the new fiscal year with vigor despite the ongoing COVID-19 situation. In February, we held a successful Family Poster Contest, replacing our annual family event, with winners awarded $500 prizes.
Investing in Our Team: Upcoming Staff Training
Our staff recently completed the Mental Health First Aid training, a vital tool for supporting individuals facing mental health challenges. We highly recommend this course for other organizations. This May, we are excited to further invest in our team with training sessions focused on enhancing counseling, communication skills, and conflict resolution.

We are delighted to announce that our services are now running at full capacity at the Centre. Our team remains dedicated to adapting to the challenges presented by COVID-19 while providing unwavering support to those in need.
Spotlight: The Joyful In-House Daycare for Residents
We take great pride in our In-House Daycare Centre, where our devoted daycare worker, RL, creates a nurturing and engaging environment for children. The Centre is thoughtfully divided into sections, each offering a variety of activities that children adore. The joyful atmosphere makes it difficult for some little ones to leave, reflecting the positive impact of our daycare services.
