Virtual Programs

In order to combat social isolation during the current COVID-19 pandemic, SCOC has taken its activities and programs ‘virtual’!

Listed programs will be conducted and attended through Zoom interactive sessions. Residents will be able to join either by computer/tablet etc or by calling in via a phone. This new format allows extra flexibility in that those participating and hosting the session can do so from any location where zoom is accessible.

If you are interested in participating in our SCOC Virtual Programs, please contact C.Sheppard@scoc.ca or phone 416-757-8757, ext. 250.
