February 2023 Orientation

We look forward to meeting you soon!

Our New Student Orientation structure is dependent on the guidelines from the Provincial Ministry of Education and the COVID-19: Travel, testing and borders – Travel.gc.ca rules that the Government of Canada has put in place.

 

We have planned for an in-person New Student Orientation on February 1, 2023. The details and schedule will be communicated to eligible students closer to the time through Google Classroom.

Students will contacted by Friday, January 13 regarding how to access their Google Accounts.
