To our members,


Effective immediately, the Rayside Balfour Youth Centre will be closed due to the growing concern around the COVID-19 virus. The health and safety of our employees and members is our top priority, therefore we will be closed until further notice in order to limit the potential spread of the virus. In the meantime, we will be taking the proper measures to clean and sanitize the centre before its reopening.


We apologize for any inconveniences this closure may cause and we will continue to update our members once we are aware of when the centre will be reopening.


Thank you for your understanding,


Rayside Balfour Youth Centre Staff
