Out of an abundance caution, University Canada West has made the decision to hold all classes online for the Spring (April) 2021 Term.
“We believe this is the best course of action so we can do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff,” said UCW President Brock Dykeman.
“We hope that we can return to on-campus classes for the Summer Term, however, UCW’s Senior Leadership Team and I will continue to monitor the situation, and we will make our decision based on the advice and latest data from the provincial health authority and the BC Ministry of Advanced Education,” he said.
While British Columbia has seen an overall decrease in the number daily infections, the number of infections remains high and the Provincial Health Order restricting social gatherings and other activities has been extended.
