As of 7 pm on Monday, March 16, Marpole Oakridge Family Place will be closing our facilities and cancelling our in person workshops and programs. At this time, we are planning for the facility closure to continue until further notice.  Please check our website and/or our Facebook page for further updates.

While the building is going to be closed, MOFP will be offering a virtual drop in experience.  Staff are currently working hard to explore and plan what that will look like.  Please check our Facebook page for further details.

Registered nurses at HealthLink BC can help you with non-emergency health concerns, to discuss symptoms and procedures, and to recommend whether you should see a health care provider in person. At any time of the day or night, every day of the year, you can call 8-1-1 to ask a registered nurse your health questions.
