Message from our CEO Scott Pepin

COVID-19 Update from our CEO 

Dear Five Counties Families,

As announced by the Ontario Government, we will enter the second province-wide State of Emergency for a period of 28 days effective Thursday, January 14th at 12:01am in an effort to keep our regions safe and lower the contact of COVID-19. 

Five Counties Children’s Centre is deemed an essential service within the government’s pandemic response framework and all Five Counties Children’s Centre sites will remain open for Virtual Therapy and in-Centre services by appointment.

Children, youth and families are the heart of Five Counties Children’s Centre.  We are continuously watching the impact of Covid-19 on our daily lives, and taking our advice from our local Health Units and the Ministry of Health. The health and safety of our families and staff are of the utmost concern and at the forefront of all our decisions, and we are confident that the enhanced screening, PPE utilization and cleaning protocols we have implemented in response to COVID-19 enable us to safely deliver services to clients and families, despite the pandemic.

If you have questions or concerns you can reach out to our team by email at or by phone at:

Peterborough 1-888-779-9916
Cobourg 1-877-574-5212
