June 4, 2020 -- Avalon continues to monitor adjustments to provincial public health protocols, in order to ensure our offices re-open safely for staff and community. Preparation underway includes new protocols for the use of our space to observe recommended distancing, and the associated planning and scheduling to enable this; changes to equipment, furnishings and other physical elements in order to support surface safety standards; and a variety of other adaptations to our work practices. We will continue to update our community as we complete these preparations.

Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner response is to emergency rooms. Anyone who has experienced a sexual assault in the past 7 days can speak with a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner at 902-425-0122 or proceed to Emergency for treatment and/or forensic evidence collection. Other staff continue to work remotely and support current clients. We are checking messages on Avalon voice mail, 902-422-4240, regularly. Thank you for your patience.


Avalon is temporarily unable to receive new counselling requests. We will be directing all therapeutic counselling service to those on the waitlist until we are able to estimate wait times. All other services are unchanged. Information on the temporary change in counselling service here, resources here.
