We are planning to offer the TeleConnections course in Ottawa for the first time this winter, thanks to the support from the Bell Let's Talk Community Fund.  Dates of the course:  Every Saturday morning for 12 weeks, beginning on January 12, with the last class on March 30.  Applicants can use the usual Family Connections application form, available on the ON-BPD website

In addition to the information that is requested on the form, applicants should indicate that they would like to be considered for the TeleConnections course and the name of the city or town they would be calling from.  The TeleConnections course is conducted entirely by telephone, offering an option for those in rural areas, those for whom travel to a meeting place would be difficult under winter conditions, and those with other mobility issues.
