JBCP shares its building with several tenants providing services to the community: JBUPCC (Urgent and Primary Care Centre), LifeLabs, HerWay Home, and other independent providers of health services.

  • The limits on the number of people permitted in various spaces in our building are removed.
  • Access to our programs is by pre-registration only. Proof of vaccination is still mandatory for program participation.
