During this global pandemic the City’s primary focus is the health and safety of our citizens and our employees. While public health and health care is not a municipal function, we do play a critical role in the health of our community by delivering essential municipals services to our citizens. This page has been created, and will be updated throughout this pandemic event, to help keep citizens informed about our services and the efforts the City is undertaking.

Selkirk’s Business Continuity Plan and Response Strategy

The city has developed a Business Continuity and Response Strategy to guide the City’s response to this pandemic as the situation changes and evolves. This document outlines the actions each municipal service area will be taking to reduce the risk to employees who are delivering critical municipal services to you, our Citizens. The City is taking responsible and proactive precautions to maintain our ability to deliver the essential services and to reduce risk to citizens within City facilities. We are sharing our high-level plan with the public to help inform citizens about our current actions and the actions we plan to take as this evolving situation requires us to raise our level of preparedness. This is an evolving plan and we anticipate it will change as the nature of this situation changes. The City will post the most current version of this plan on this page as they are made public.

Our current Preparedness Response Level is set to Level III
