COVID-19 Update from 4-H Canada

Updated Nov. 27, 2020

As communities across Canada continue to adjust to the unforeseen challenges from the effects of COVID-19, 4-H Canada’s priority continues to be the health, safety and security of our youth members, volunteer leaders, families, and the communities 4-H impacts.

We have worked over these past months to adapt and deliver as existing programs as possible in the pandemic environment and respond with resources that address the emerging needs of our 4-H community. 4-H Canada remains committed to delivering fun, inclusive and relevant programming to our 4-H youth and leaders, to support the 4-H community, and to working in partnership with our provincial 4-H organizations, partners, and stakeholders as we continue to empower youth leaders.

Provincial and Local Programming Updates

As provincial governments vary in their respective levels of restrictions, local and provincial in-person 4-H programming may resume and/or be paused under provincial health and safety guidelines. Please contact your provincial 4-H office for more information on the status of 4-H programming where you live.
