Local Resources & Services

When you contact our community office, my staff and I will do everything we can to assist.  At this time, we are working remotely, by email and telephone, in order to maximize social distancing efforts, per the BCCDC.  To speak with David Eby (by appointment) or staff, please call 604-660-1297 or email at david.eby.mla@leg.bc.ca.  

If we are not available and you need immediate assistance, contact Service BC.
