Our immediate priority is the safety of the premises, being your home. Waypoints is pleased to announce that rent will not be charged for the months of May or June 2016 for our residents at The Compass. We are working diligently to ensure your home is going to be available to you.
We want to welcome you home as quickly as possible and have developed a comprehensive plan to ensure a prompt return once our insurance adjuster determines it is safe to do so. Once our teams are allowed back into Fort McMurray, inspection of the building will be completed and necessary repairs may be required before we determine that our building is ready for occupancy. Our insurance adjuster will be assessing damage on June 6th. We will announce our building's return date once our assessments of work required have been completed.
Should you have any questions, please contact me directly at (780) 370-5345.

Fire Department Gives $75k Back to the Community
The Fort McMurray Fire Fighting Association went to 5 charities in Fort McMurray and gave a surprise visit. The Fire Fighters surprised them each with a cheque for $15,000. Shaw TV covered the action and the surprises were definitely unexpected.
The Stop the Hurting, Start the Healing Capital Campaign is in the last stretch with just $2 million to raise from the original $35 million budget to fund the future expansion of the FMFCS to provide a continuum of support and accommodation to families affected by domestic violence.
The project consists of two components: an affordable housing component and an emergency shelter with ancillary services space component.
