COVID-19 is reminding us that our collective action and collaboration is so needed now!

We are grateful to so many organizations to deliver essential services. Here on this page we have pulled together some community resources for easy reference. 

Marginalized and disadvantaged people in Grey Bruce are at higher risk of COVID19: Indigenous people, people who are homeless, people on social assistance, people in jail, people who are living with disabilities or compromised immune systems and the elderly. 

Marginalized people become even more vulnerable during emergencies.

The populations most at risk are those that
• depend heavily on the informal economy
• occupy areas prone to shocks
• have inadequate access to social services or political influence
• have no sick leave benefits/limited capacities and opportunities to cope and adapt
• limited or no access to technologies

By understanding these issues, we can support the capacity of vulnerable populations in emergencies. We have listed a few tools and resources to assist organizations:
