Effective March 17, 2020 at 12:00 pm, the Thunder Bay Indigenous Centre (TBIFC) will be closed to the public in response to the growing concerns of the spread of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) until April 6, 2020, at which point the closure will be re-assessed. This decision was made to support the safety of our employees and our community.

Should you require assistance TBIFC Staff will be available by email, phone and other forms of communications during regular business hours (9:00 am to 5:00 pm). Staff working remotely will have access to their voicemail through our voice messaging system.

We ask for patience during this time. I can assure you that we are doing everything possible to assist and support our community while we navigate this difficult time.
