Reopening Plan and Employment Opportunities

MAX’s Reopening Plan and Employment Opportunities

While many of you are enjoying relaxed self-isolation restrictions, we at MAX Ottawa have been getting cozy in our new home!  We’re neighbouring up with The Ten Oaks Project and Centretown Community Health Centre (CCHC) at 400 Cooper Street.

We’re looking forward to hosting community events and our full range of programs and services in our new home once it is safe for us to do so. We hope that this new office will serve as a home, not just for MAX Ottawa staff, but for the community as a whole.

Reopening MAX Ottawa: Orange Phase

MAX Ottawa is currently in the Orange Phase of our reopening policy. We will take an informed and evidence-based approach in MAX Ottawa’s COVID-19 response as we reopen the workplace and maintain a safe and healthy space.

Following public health guidelines, we have implemented these measures to keep the MAX community safe: 

  • personal protective equipment (PPE) dispensers at the entrance;
  • two-metre distance reference markers;
  • physical barriers at the reception and screening process;
  • curb-side pick up for harm reduction materials; and
  • maximum of nine employees, volunteers, or visitors on site at a time.

Currently, on-site visits are available by appointment only for the following services:

  • Harm Reduction Pick-Up – Have questions on substance use and sex? Need harm reduction supplies? Reach out to Mat Adams for more details.

While our office is available by appointment only, you can still access a number of MAX’s programs and services remotely! Our programs and services are hosted via phone, ZOOM, or social media, including our Peer Support Program and Community MAXimizers.
