OVRC Statement

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that after Friday, April 17, Osborne Village Resource Centre will be closed for all services until further notice.

This was not the outcome that we had hoped for; however, due to COVID-19, our funding has been delayed.

When our funding resumes, we are looking forward to continuing to provide our clients with our services and support.

We are incredibly thankful for all of the amazing clients that we have had the opportunity to help and get to know.

During this challenging time, it is essential that we continue to come together as a community and take care of ourselves and each other.

There are still people being hired! Many of them through on-line interviews, which leads to our next panic question from a client:


Employment Workshops

All of the staff at Osborne Village Resource Centre – Keith, Judy, Betty, John, Lisa, Kristina and Lianne – want to thank the Winnipeg Foundation for their generous capital grant to update our server and all of our computers to Windows 10 and Office 2016. Upgrading to the newer versions increases our digital security, and allows clients to work in and learn the operating system and productivity software being used in the business world right now. It’s been nearly a decade since we did this kind of upgrade and we’re very excited. Thank you so much, from all of us!
