At UrbanArts, the safety and well-being of our employees, participants, volunteers, contractors, visitors and partners remain our top priority. 

Like you, we are monitoring the ongoing developments with and concerns around the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.  While we are making every effort to ensure the safety of all who visit our spaces or in the places we visit, we currently have no programs or services in any known locations considered at risk.  However, we continue to take this matter very seriously. 

Both our Weston and Mount Dennis locations will continue to operate on our regular schedule until further notice.  Our off-site programs in schools and other community spaces will also continue as normal until further notice.  We will keep updated on all new developments and will inform the community as soon as we determine the need for any closures or breaks in programming.

In the interim and in accordance with updates from the City of Toronto and Toronto Public Health, we recommend that you refer to the latest updates using the links below:

Public health guidance for schools (K-12) and childcare programs (COVID-19)


The City of Toronto also encourages “residents to stay informed by regularly reviewing credible information sources, including our website www.toronto.ca/coronavirus. Residents can also call Toronto Public Health at 416-338-7600, Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Translation is available in many languages.
