The Kwumut Lelum offices on Centre St. will be temporarily closed for repairs after a crawlspace fire caused significant structural damage. No one was hurt in the blaze. Staff are already settled in to temporary locations at Stz’uminus First Nation and will continue to deliver critical services to our communities:
Guardianship/Residential Resource team and Child Protection team are working at 12611B Trans Canada Highway, Ladysmith
Our Early Years programs and other non-delegated services will continue to deliver outreach services with staff working remotely
The phones at Kwumut Lelum are being forwarded to relevant staff and departments at their new locations. You can continue to contact us at our main number: 250-591-0933 between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:30 pm to reach Kwumut Lelum staff. If you are making an after-hours call about a child in need of protection please contact After Hours at 310-1234.
