Letter of Appreciation from the Board of Directors

The past short while has been a difficult and disquieting journey for all CLSL employees while striving to understand and be protected from the COVID-19 Virus, while simultaneously striving to overcome mountainous challenges in support of the many individuals and their families receiving services from CLSL.

The Board’s goal is to keep everyone as safe as is possible and to ensure to the best of its ability that everyone has the essentials and resources needed to forge through the difficult journey ahead.

Your heroic efforts have not been unnoticed, and this letter is our Board of Director’s expression of its sincere appreciation for all that you have done and knowingly will continue to do.

Chris King, President
Board of Directors

COVID-19

Message from Community Living Sarnia-Lambton

In response to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and by taking seriously and closely monitoring the recommendations made by our public health agencies and our federal and provincial governments, Community Living Sarnia-Lambton (CLSL) has decided to cancel the following programs until further notice:

  • Wawanosh Day Options
  • The Activity Centre
  • Adult and Children's Respite
  • Employment Transitions and JobPath
  • Community Participation / Recreation Activities

During this difficult time, CLSL will be assigning its staffing resources in full support of the individuals who reside in its Housing Options and who live in the community.

Our commitment is to place above all else the health, safety and well-being of the people we support, their families and our employees.
