COVID-19 safety plan

Working closely with public health authorities and BC's provincial government, University Canada West (UCW) has developed a detailed plan for students and staff to return to campus safely. 

We continue to consult with the province to determine when we can reopen in a way that ensures the health of the UCW community. 

Our Occupational Health and Safety team has assessed classrooms, labs and offices to ensure that we adhere closely to WorkSafeBC standards for post-secondary institutions.

We will reopen our campus to students with blended classes. Our Academic Department is working with faculty to supplement in-class learning instruction with online learning.

Outside of the classroom, the Registrar’s Office, Finance Department, Learning Strategist, Student Affairs and Academic Advising will continue to offer students support. Staff can also refer students to academic resources including, writing coaches, math tutors, academic advising and our learning strategist.

Since the onset of COVID‐19, UCW has placed the safety of our students, faculty and staff at the forefront of our response. We will continue to adapt our teaching, learning and service delivery methods to ensure students can continue to succeed. 

Here is our detailed plan.
