If you can vote from home, please do so. While we will be doing everything we can to ensure the voting process is as safe as possible in the time of COVID-19, we are safest when we reduce the number of people coming into contact with one another. Our precautions will be:

  • sanitization of the voting laptops after every use
  • limit of three non-staff in the building at a time
  • masks for all voting staff
  • hand sanitizer stations

If you have access to a mask or gloves, please wear them!

Peter is one of the newest additions to the Health Centre team and a member of the caribou clan of Stellako First Nation. He cites his passion for wanting to help people in need and that are suffering from addictions as his reason for becoming a counsellor. After working with Carrier Sekani Family services through ARP (addictions recovery program), Peter decided to return to school and completed a five-month course in advanced counselling training. He is proudly nineteen years sober, and hopes to use his first-hand experience to bring compassion, empathy, and understanding to his position.
