Presented together with the Canadian Psychiatric Association (CPA) With the support of BC Construction Safety Alliance Presented in partnership with Ledcor Group As we slowly begin to readjust to this new normal, many of us have questions on what’s next and how to cope with new reality of living with the virus and related consequences, adding a new level of insecurity and anxiety deep down in our mind.
