The Halton Police Chief and their officers have been very supportive of HRCCA. Over the years, we have kept a close touch with the Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS). We have representatives participating in the HRPS Diversity Engagement Table, our volunteers also joined other activities organized by the HRPS. One of our youth leaders was also selected to sit on the HRPS Youth Advisory Council. Sgt. Ryan Smith (Equity, Diversity & Inclusion) of the HRPS has been very helpful and supportive, keeping close contacts with us, joining our HRCCA activities including Zoom meetings and relating relevant information.

To effectively disseminate information from the HRPS, we have added a weblink in our Community Partnership Page. Please feel free to visit the HRPS website for information related to New COVID Restrictions, relevant news and above all, opportunities in policing OR to know about policing in the Citizen Police Academy (CPA) program. Visit HRPS for more information. Alternatively, email to ask Louis Tsai of his experience since he had also completed the CPA program.

President’s Report at 2020 AGM (PDF)

Courtesy of our HRCCA director Doctor Jennifer Kwan who is the author who compiled useful information on her website about donating supplies to hospitals; pasted below is only an excerpt; please visit Doctor Kwan’s webpage for hospital lists and more information on :

Hospitals accepting Personal Protective Equipment
(PPE) Donations in Ontario, Canada


If you wish to donate medical personal protective equipment (PPE), visit list of contact information for certain Ontario, Canada hospitals. The list includes Toronto, Burlington, Durham Region, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo, London, Ottawa, Vaughan, Brampton/Etobicoke, Barrie, North York, and Sudbury.  Links for the federal government and Ontario efforts to secure PPE have now been added. The federal government is also making intensive efforts to secure efforts for PPE for healthcare providers.

This information was collected based on information readily available as of March 23, 2020.  Please check with the hospitals to verify their needs, as well as their preconditions and precautions for donation (all information provided below is subject to frequent change, and the authors are not responsible for changes, errors or omissions). The authors do not know whether other Ontario hospitals and health institutions not listed below are currently accepting donations. 

Please also comply with all public health authority/government guidance and requirements when making a donation and arranging for delivery (including, but not limited to, all guidance and requirements for social distancing and/or self-isolating).

Burlington gynecologist, Dr. Paul Wu, our HRCCA’s founding member & director, is also hoping to coordinate accepting donations of medical personal protective equipment (PPE). Doctors cannot access hospitals’ supplies, and all distributors are on back order with no realistic delivery dates. E-mail or call Louis Tsai at 905-407-0822 if you’d like to donate these supplies so that doctors’ offices can benefit as well.

Liza Wu, HRCCA president working with volunteers from The Healthy Minds & our HRCCA youth volunteer leaders are raising awareness & helping the Compassion Society.

Such organization has been accepting donations from the public to assist homeless and low-income households, providing them with food and daily supplies. With our volunteer’s help, the first batch of cleaning supplies was delivered. Staff there told us that in the next week or two, because of Covid-19, there will be a large shortage of supplies and they need help very much. So, we’d like to relate this message to our members, friends and others who would like to help.
