What if I am unable to make it to the workshop after all?

It is important that you let us know if you will be unable to attend. We have just one workshop for this important topic. If you do not show up it means a lost opportunity for someone else. Please cancel your ticket on line, or email quenneville@familyservices.bc.ca as soon as you know you will be unable to attend.


How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please email quenneville@familyservices.bc.ca if you require more information.

What are my transportation options for getting to and from the event?

From the Metrotown Skytrain station, it's a 7 minute walk to Bonsor Rec Centre. From the station, cross over towards Metrotown and turn right onto Central Boulevard. Follow this to Bonsor and turn left. The Rec Centre will be on your right.
