SRV Canada VRS new website:)

June 2016 Update - SRV Canada VRS

Please click here to watch this announcement in ASL.

In April, we announced the name of the new VRS service, “SRV Canada VRS”, and today, we are announcing a new website
http://avlic.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=704ce6b31a1dfd876e3e44037&id=cb61fafe16&e=a62054264d.

Go to the website to learn about the technical requirements and equipment that you will need to use VRS when it becomes available in September.

Also, there are two important features on the new website I’d like to emphasize.

The first is a brief Survey with questions you can respond to help CAV understand how our community will be using the service.  For example, choice of language (ASL/LSQ) or which province you live in or what type of equipment you plan to use (pc, tablet or smartphone).

Secondly, in a short video message (ASL or LSQ) tell us how you think VRS will impact your life. Selected videos will be edited and will be included in a short film which will premiere at CAV’s launch event and will also be featured on the
http://avlic.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=704ce6b31a1dfd876e3e44037&id=78ca2c905c&e=a62054264d website.

In addition, we’ve begun building new call centres and training Video Interpreters and Customer Service Representatives.

I hope you can feel the excitement. VRS is coming alive!  Tell your friends – “SRV Canada VRS – it’s coming!!!”

Thank you,

Sue Decker
Executive Director, CAV-ACS

Daily Public Service Announcements
Public Service Announcements (PSAs) will be released daily at least eight hours in advance of fogging. These PSAs will identify the Insect Management Areas the Insect Control Branch is planning to treat that evening, weather permitting. Until further notice, fogging will be carried out on a daily basis between the hours of 9:30 p.m. and 6:30 a.m.  Fogging will not occur when temperatures are below 13 degrees Celsius and/or wind speeds are not conducive to fogging.

The insecticide Pro Malathion ULV® will be used. This insecticide has been approved for use in Canada by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency. Pro Malathion ULV® will be used in accordance with federally approved label directions by licensed pesticide applicators.

Buffer Zones
All buffer zones will be respected. Crews will ensure that the sprayer is not treating within 90 metres on each side of a registered property on the front street, side street, and rear lane.

Property owners not wanting insecticides applied on or adjacent to their principal residence may register as “Anti-Pesticide Registrants” (APR) for the adult nuisance mosquito control program. Those who wish to register must provide identification that ties the registrant to the address being registered for a buffer zone. A photocopy or scanned document such as a driver’s licence or a utility bill will suffice as acceptable identification proving primary residence. Remember – a 72-hour turnaround time is required.

North Winnipeg Antenna System Project Public Information Session

The City of Winnipeg must remove an existing antenna system, used by a number of City departments, located at the North End Water Pollution Control Centre (2230 Main Street), before the end of the year to accommodate the future expansion of the North End Water Pollution Control Centre scheduled to begin in 2017.

To ensure there are no gaps in coverage, a proposed antenna system must be built in the vicinity of the existing antenna system by the end of 2016, and prior to its decommissioning. A proposed, lower, 120 metre tall antenna system will be constructed, pending Industry Canada approval of the City’s proposal.

Nearby City-owned property at the south east corner of Murray Avenue and Ferrier Street is being proposed as the location for the installation of the proposed antenna system.

Any member of the public or organization who wishes to provide questions, comments or concerns in writing must do so by June 26, 2016.
