Councillor's Corner - May 2021

Dear Resident,

I have more updates about the vaccine rollout to share with you. Remember, getting vaccinated is the best way to keep everyone safe. Many of you have already received your first dose, with second doses scheduled or on the way in the coming months. We must continue to work together towards a future where it’ll be safe to meet in person again. That time is coming, and I look forward to seeing and speaking with you.

Now that it’s warmer outside and summer is upon us, please remember to continue following public health guidelines. It’s essential to spend time outdoors but to do so safely with members of your own home. Please wear a mask when you go out or cannot maintain physical distancing.

You’ve received my Spring Newsletter and other flyers in your mailbox. If you have comments or questions about local developments and projects, please contact me at:


Or email me at:

I will have more news to share with you shortly.

What if I'm homebound?

If you are a homebound person receiving care through a Primary Care Provider, Family Health Team, Home Care or Community Support Service, please contact your provider to learn if they offer in-home vaccination. If your provider cannot provide at-home immunization, they will place your name on a list for at-home vaccination.

If you are a homebound person who does not have a Primary Care Provider, Family Health Team, Home Care, or Community Support Service, please contact the Toronto Seniors Helpline. This service supports homebound people who are aged 18-65, as well as seniors. Contact 416-217-2077 or utilize the web-chat feature at
