Resources to Help Nonprofits Adapt and Respond to COVID-19

The Ontario Not-for-Profit Network has complied a list of information to help not-for-profits during these challenging times.

A Word From WPH Regarding COVID -19

As we are a business located in the busy city centre of Hamilton we are practicing social distancing. All WPH staff are still working on projects and can be contacted easiest by email.

We would like to thank all the front line workers in the medical fields, care and support services, emergency response, pharmacies, grocery stores, and all other services that continue to assure the health and well-being of our vibrant Hamilton Community.

During these times, businesses, especially smaller local businesses, will be greatly impacted by government mandated closures as well as closures for the safety of our community. We hope our community continues to support local to ensure these small businesses remain as an important part of our community.
