Get to know the recent updates on reopening colleges in Canada with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic

Current reports from Canada state that more universities have confirmed their plans to hold classes for the winter. While the world braces for the second wave of COVID-19, Canada will also be opting for online classes

Check out the list of universities that will be continuing for the winter term.

The list

University Affairs

  • Kwantlen Polytechnic University says it will “continue with additional on-campus instructional activities that are essential to the completion of courses and programs, combined with remote delivery of programs and services to students” in January. This fall, more than 70 classes (out of 1,900 total classes offered at KPU) offered some form of in-person learning experience.
  • Trent University will “increase the number of in-person courses for the coming winter 2021 term, offering a mix of in-person, online and remote options in our multi-access approach. … Students should be reassured that many courses offered in person will also be made available with options for remote or online learning.”
  • The University of Prince Edward Island, in the Atlantic Bubble, announced a blended delivery model for winter 2021.
  • Algoma University is planning for the return of “some” in-person classes in January. The Timmins Press doesn’t have an exact number, but Algoma said it would limit access to 25 to 30 percent of a room’s normal capacity.
  • With Montreal and Ottawa seeing a drastic increase in COVID-19 cases, universities in these areas – including l’Université de Montréal, Concordia University, l’Université du Québec en Outaouais and McGill University – are keeping online learning as the status quo into the winter term. Carleton University noted that “the winter semester [will] proceed online, with some leeway for selected optional instruction on campus (e.g. specific labs, capstone projects, recitals) if circumstances allow.”
  • At Memorial University, students will continue to take courses “in a primarily remote teaching and learning environment for the winter 2021 semester.”
  • The University of Manitoba will also run online courses, with just a few in-person opportunities available to students.
