Seven workers from the Pine Free Clinic have received layoff notices.
The services at Pine – the only dedicated youth clinic in Kitsilano – will be consolidated to Raven Song, a move Gavin Wilson from Vancouver Coastal Health says will offer more services.
“We’ll be open seven days a week 12 hours. As well youth there will have better access to services like public health, mental health and addictions. Services they don’t have easy access to at Pine.”
The changes will come on October 31st.
