The health and wellness of our participants, faculty, instructors, and staff are our highest priority while we closely monitor new developments and updates from the Office of the Provincial Medical Health Officer, the BC Centre for Disease Control and the Ministry of Health.

We will also be offering you the opportunity to participate in free, on-line learning sessions with the best of our faculty over the next two months to keep you on track and to help you meet your professional development goals.
