Archived Updates

September 2, 2020 Update:

We have been working hard to ensure a safe reopening of ISANS. We are excited to announce the reopening of our Joseph Howe location for limited language classes and increased in-person services at ISANS Mumford.

Language Classes and ECE Services

If your class is resuming in-person, you will receive a call providing you with detailed information. If you do not receive a call or instructions to attend class in-person, your class will continue to be offered online.

ISANS will be offering limited ECE services to eligible clients at ISANS Mumford (starting September 8th) and ISANS Joseph Howe (beginning September 14th). Please work with your coordinator or assistant to confirm if your program or service supports ECE service and space reservations.

General Guidelines

To respect health and safety guidelines, we ask clients to read these steps and follow them when visiting us:

  • Book an appointment for in-person service only if you cannot access our services remotely (from home).
  • Make sure to come in at the exact time of your appointment.
  • Remember we are only able to provide service if you have booked an appointment (unless you have an urgent settlement concern or crisis)
  • Do not come in if you are sick, showing symptoms of COVID-19, or are supposed to be self-isolating due to travel
  • You must wear a mask on-site for safety reasons unless you are not able to for medical reasons (if you do not have a mask, ISANS will provide you one)
  • Follow the posters, signs, and guidelines displayed throughout the office

Please continue to follow all instructions from local health authorities and the Government of Canada, including preventative actions like washing hands, travel restrictions, and self-quarantine if required. This is important to keep you and your loved ones safe during this time.
