In response to the COVID-19 (C-19) pandemic, our Colleges have closed their Metro Vancouver locations until further notice. In the meantime, our Colleges are continuing to add new student-interest and career-focused programming in a continued effort to recruit and effectively prepare students for their respective academic and career journeys. Further information in regard to programs, admissions and operations is available on this website. All courses are currently available online and all employees are working from their home office with the exception of select operations staff who are maintaining the integrity of our facility operations.
In anticipation of re-opening our locations to our employees and broader college community members in 2021, we have developed a C-19 Response Policy and Re-opening Plan. Central to both the Policy and Plan is our commitment to comply with the requirements of WorkSafeBC’s Occupational Health and Safety Regulation 5.54 and 6.3. All students, employees and members of our broader college community will be required to strictly adhere to the procedures contained in the plan to minimize risk associated with contracting the virus that causes COVID-19. Our Covid-19 Safety Plan, our Travel and Self-isolation Guide and our International Student Quarantine Plan are available below.
Travellers arriving in B.C. from international locations including the United States by air, land or sea must complete the International Student Quarantine Plan, the federal ArriveCAN application, and the BC Self-Isolation Plan.
