New Member Open House

(4:30 to 6:30pm ETFO-YR Office)


We would like to inform you that our Open House event scheduled for February 29 has been cancelled due to lower than anticipated enrolment figures.

This decision was not arrived at lightly. We believe redirecting our resources and focus towards other initiatives will be more beneficial and in alignment with our collective goals. Stay tuned for more information.

In solidarity,

The New Members Committee
