The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre will be temporarily closed to the public starting March 18, 2020. All programming will be cancelled as a preventative measure to help slow the spread of COVID-19 through our community.
While there have been no presumptive or confirmed cases of COVID-19 at the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre and public risk in Canada remains low, this decision has been made out of an abundance of caution, as we strive to be part of the local solution to this global situation.
For renters and groups who have booked with us we will contact you and will try our best to reschedule, once we reopen.
We will be putting all memberships on hold and extending membership expiry dates for the duration we are closed.
As a science-based organization ourselves, we encourage everyone to refer to science-based sources of information on this virus. For additional information on preventing the spread of COVID-19, please visit the Government of Canada’s website. For more background information about COVID-19, please visit the B.C. Centre for Disease Control’s website.
We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available.
Until we can welcome you back, we encourage our community to visit our social media accounts and digital touch points. We look forward to getting back to our regularly scheduled programming as soon as it is reasonable to do so.
This remains a complicated and rapidly evolving situation, and one that reminds us all of our responsibility to look out and care for our collective community. We appreciate your cooperation and patience as we navigate this together.
