Posted on March 8, 2021

On March 8, 2021, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry sent a letter to all B.C. post-secondary presidents, acknowledging their institutions’ leadership and contributions in mitigating the spread of COVID-19 over the past year, and endorsing a safe return to on-campus learning in September 2021.

In the letter, Dr. Henry shared concerns about the well-being of post-secondary students and stressed the importance of colleges and universities in young peoples’ lives. Aligning with B.C.’s vaccine rollout plan and the Go-Forward Guidelines for B.C.’s Post-Secondary Sector, Dr. Henry supports a “safe and complete resumption of campus teaching, learning, and research” this fall.
