The National Association of Indo-Canadians have responded to increased demand for vital goods and services as a result of COVID-19.
Our staff and volunteers have been working tirelessly to assist seniors, particularly vulnerable seniors, to make them feel included.
We believe our existence lies in realigning with new Covid-19 realty and thus we have a new program which keeps seniors in centre. NAIC has a mandate from the government of Canada under the NHSP program and we were able to swiftly modify our direct service delivery to seniors.
Despite challenges and loss of volunteers in our sector, the NAIC has been well-staffed to deliver new vital services. We have recruited and trained volunteers to deliver services required to respond to COVID-19.
We believe community awareness is of paramount importance and we continue to inform and educate our seniors about COVID-19.
