COVID-19 Response


WCHRI understands that the situation with COVID-19 is rapidly evolving and protecting the health of our community is of top priority.

We are continuing to closely monitor updates related to COVID-19 and will be following processes recommended by the University of Alberta and Alberta Health Services. During this time, many of our staff may be working remotely. Although this may impact business operations and may cause delays, we have contingency plans in place to ensure we can maintain delivery of services. 


Note that there are no changes to our grant deadlines.
