Receiving a backpack through our Backpack Program? Here are our pick-up locations.

Have you registered for backpacks through our Backpack Program? If so, you will receive a call letting you know that your backpacks have arrived at the pick-up depot.

As of today, only Kincardine and Tara will be open tomorrow for pick-ups. The rest of the locations will be ready later this week.

We ask that you wear a mask when you pick up your backpack and practice physical distancing.
