Re: Northern Ontario lockdown extended          

On December 26th, 2020, Ontario entered a province wide lockdown that resulted in Special Olympics Ontario (SOO) placing a hold on all SOO programs across the province. The Province of Ontario recently announced that the lockdown in Northern Ontario will be extended until January 23, 2021.  

Special Olympics Ontario virtual programs are kicking it up for 2021!

There will be tough months ahead but there is a hopefulness, not just for Special Olympics but across society. We’ll need to do our part to ensure that the transition from survival to development doesn’t create a vacuum effect of indifference. Our collaboration will need to mitigate this and that’s what we’ll do.
