COVID-19 Update

Dear Friends,

As we look towards our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, there is still a lot about the future that is unknown. But one thing is for sure – we won’t simply be going back to the way things were. We have an opportunity to build our province back even better than before, and to make it a better place to live, work, play, and raise a family.

I also want to ensure you know that I and our Vancouver-Fairview community office staff are available and eager to help with questions, problems, and information. As of March 1st 2022, constituency staff are working remotely Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday and are available via phone and email between 10am – 4pm. The office is open for walk-in appointments on Wednesday and Friday between 10am and 4pm.

Phone: 604 775 2453 | Email: george.heyman.mla@leg.bc.ca

Thank you for taking this emergency seriously and acting responsibly to protect the health of your family and neighbors.

Sincerely,

George Heyman
MLA for Vancouver Fairview
