Lest We Forget
Today, we remember those who fought for freedom.

"In Flanders Fields, the poppies blow between the crosses, row on row, that mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly scarce heard amid the guns below."

- John McCrae. 

CTN's COVID-19 Vaccination Policy
To support CTN’s strong commitment to protecting vulnerable individuals from COVID-19, CTN developed a COVID-19 vaccination policy that meets the requirements set out by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services to minimize the risk of transmission of the COVID-19 virus. This policy complies with the government of Ontario’s directive related to vaccination of individuals working in a higher risk work setting. CTN employee and contracted service providers continue to follow safety protocols such as wearing personal protective equipment, practicing hand hygiene and physical distancing, when possible, for all in-person visits. For more information about CTN’s vaccination policy, visit the Latest News section of our COVID-19 page.
Your Child and the Flu Shot
Following the news and keeping up to date with health recommendations for your family can be confusing during this time. As we head into flu season, it’s important to understand the differences between COVID-19 vaccinations and the flu shot to make an informed decision to protect the people you love.
