On Monday April 26th, the BNC hosted a vaccine pop-up clinic in partnership with Northway Pharmacy, providing a space for the pharmacy to safely vaccinate around 50 community members who held appointments. The clinic ran successfully with enough time designated in between appointments for people to get their vaccine and stay for the allotted waiting period after the shot. We hope to continue the partnership to allow for as many people as possible to get vaccinated in the community. If you have any questions about booking appointments and vaccine inquiries, call Northway Pharmacy at (204)783-1887.
Harvest Manitoba Food bank is still operational and running on- site bi-weekly at the BNC, distribution remains outdoors and distanced pick- up and distribution is accessible to registered Harvest patrons by appointment only, we are currently not accepting walk-ins.

Over the last year, throughout the pandemic we have all felt the challenges around operating programs. It is with great pride that Just TV still stands here today, continuing to deliver quality multimedia programming to youth virtually throughout these challenging times. If not for the amazing youth participants, who put the hard work into pursuing their creative ideas we would not get through it! Their dedication is what keeps us all actively engaged in exploring new ventures and providing them with new opportunities.
Hence we launch a new segment for our monthly newsletter…..
Introducing Just TV youth spotlight.
Starting next month, we will be adding an in-depth look at a featured Just TV participant, highlighting their talents and showcasing their most recent projects within the program. We hope this segment will give our readers insight and a bright glimmer of inspiration as we hope for the future of the arts community. After all, the children are our future!

The renovations at the BNC Building are almost complete! There are few projects to finish up this week. So far new HVAC units have been installed on the main floor and the lower level of the building, a new 100% electric furnace with Zero emissions has been installed and re-lamping / new LED lighting throughout the entire facility and outdoor rink has been installed. There is better air flow and temperature control throughout the building. We can’t wait for our new Water filling station installation to be complete, for reusable bottles and water fountain access.
The transformation and major work to the Centre moving us into a more sustainable facility would not be possible without the support of The Winnipeg Foundation and Green Action Centre and The City of Winnipeg, Thank you for your support, we truly couldn’t do it without you!
