GNAG looks to vaccination for a safe and fun fall

Mary Tsai
GNAG Executive Director

GNAG staff continue to ramp up with great programs for the community despite the constant changes due to the pandemic. This fall, we have a wide range of in-person programs for all ages and interests. Online options continue as well, because who doesn’t like learning and play from the convenience of their own home?

I know many people look forward to seeing our fun and colourful guide in the Glebe Report but with the pandemic constantly evolving, we continue to update, pivot and provide programs that reflect the changing times. Please visit our website to see our digital guide and subscribe to our monthly newsletter where you will receive the most up-to-date information on additions and changes.

Registration has started! It’s great hearing how excited people are about attending classes in person at the Glebe Community Centre and at our new location, The Studio (174 First Avenue), as well as online.

GNAG’s Vaccination Policy

GNAG is dedicated to serving our community, particularly those in vulnerable populations. We have been following the available data and direction regarding COVID and the vaccination program with close attention. It is clear to us that vaccinations and other measures such as mask wearing, frequent hand washing and social distancing are critical to our recovery from the pandemic and a return to more fulsome operations.

Consequently, and in alignment with the Ontario government regulations, all participants in GNAG in-person programs and events will be required to provide proof of full vaccination, including the two-week post vaccine waiting period. People who do not provide this proof will not be able to participate in any in-person GNAG programming and events. Children under 12 years of age will be exempt from this requirement.

All clients and participants will need to provide proof of full vaccination and identification before being admitted into the GCC or The Studio. All GNAG staff, contractors and volunteers will also be required to be fully vaccinated.

For convenience, clients can send us an image of proof of vaccination from an authorised provider via email to Once we get it, your profile will be marked as vaccinated. Please note, we will not keep your vaccination receipt on file; once your profile has been updated, we will delete your immunization record.

For those in our community who are unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons, we will consider how their individual needs can be accommodated on a case-by-case basis (e.g. by offering online programming where possible) while continuing to protect the health and safety of all members in our community.

Screen protocols to restrict access to those who are not well, have been recently exposed to active COVID cases or have recently travelled outside Canada will continue to apply.

We thank you for your continued support and understanding in making our community healthy and safe.

Breakfast Club (before school) & Quest-4-Fun (after school) (JK – Grade 6)

In these changing times, GNAG has made some great changes to reflect our community’s ongoing needs! Children are back in class, and parents are heading back to work. Remember that feeling of being rushed in the morning? How about scrambling home at the end of the day to meet your child who finishes school at 3:30 p.m.? Maybe that is already happening. We can help!

GNAG’s Breakfast Club 7:30-9 a.m. and Afterschool program 3:30-5:30 p.m. are great ways to start or end your workday. Take the pressure off and feel good knowing your children will be well cared for, entertained and safe. Some restrictions including program hours, supervised walkover and program maximums may apply due to COVID-19 safety protocols. For more information, please contact
