Britannia's COVID-19 Response

Community Resilience During a Pandemic: Britannia Community Services Centre’s COVID-19 Response


On March 16, 2020, Britannia Community Services Centre, along with other community centres and facilities throughout the City of Vancouver and the Province of British Columbia, were ordered to close all programming and services to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. This report outlines the actions taken in response to the community need resulting from the mandated closures, the impact that was had on the community, and the experience of individuals within the community during this time.

 

"We are like a village and in a village people help each other through difficult times. This research will help us understand what happened and how we can plan for the future with the goal of being of service to our community."

Annie Danilko, President, Britannia Board of Directors - 2020/21

 

This project was implemented in the same way that the COVID response was activated at Britannia; by gathering people together. The intention of this report is to tell our story of resilience and service to the community, for the purpose of ensuring knowledge for the future.
