The Ontario government has ordered all non-essential workplaces to close down to help break the chain of transmission of COVID-19.
The City of Markham will continue to deliver essential services that maintain public safety and fulfill legislative requirements.
City facilities are closed to the public until further notice. Programs and drop-ins have been cancelled. Our elected officials and staff are still hard at work, and will continue to provide essential services to our community.
We expect there will be some inconveniences during the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak. We are doing everything we can to limit service disruptions. All services that protect the health and safety of our residents will be maintained during this time.
Together, we will do our part to help break the chain of transmission of COVID-19 in our community, and protect our seniors and vulnerable populations.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to our healthcare workers, those working on the front lines and our team in Markham’s Emergency Operations Centre who are working to help combat and get us through COVID-19.
The Markham Civic Centre is closed to the public until further notice. Please access select services online at markham.ca/OnlineServices.
