MESSAGE FROM OUR CEO

guy labine

Looking forward to being Together again

We have all had a challenging couple of months and Science North, along with our Bluecoats are excited to welcome you back. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted many industries, organizations, and communities all around the globe. Here at Science North, we are moving towards the new 'normal' while focusing on the safety of our staff, members and visitors.
 
I am happy to report that our team has been working extensively during this time to develop a reopening plan, that is guided by the recommendations of our government and Public Health officials to gradually welcome back our staff, members, and visitors.
 
As a leader in science, we have adjusted our experiences for the safety of our visitors and provided new programming or enhancements that you will experience when we open our doors to the public.
 
Here is a quick snapshot of the safety measures and protocols we have put in place.

We look forward to welcoming you all back to Science North.

— Guy Labine, CEO, Science North
