HRC closure due to COVID-19

Due to the ever-evolving COVID-19 situation and the need to protect our clients, staff, volunteers and the greater community, the Halifax Refugee Clinic office will be closed until the 6th of April, 2020. Staff and volunteers will be working remotely where possible and will be available by e-mail.

Please call us at (902) 422-6736 (voicemail will be checked regularly) or e-mail us at for any urgent or essential matters. We will treat these on a case-by-case basis and address them as best we can.

We will continue to support and advocate for our community during this time and we wish everyone safety and health! ❤

In solidarity,

The HRC team
