Yesterday, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry advised that B.C. public post-secondary institutions can plan for a return to on-campus activities in fall 2021, stating that it is imperative to get back on campus for everyone’s health and well-being. At Capilano University, initial planning has already started to welcome students back and see maximum in-person classes and activities on campuses and learning locations in September.

Letter from Dr. Bonnie Henry to BC Post-Secondary Presidents

In the weeks ahead, we will be consulting the Provincial Health Office, Government, the BC Centre for Disease Control, WorkSafeBC, the Capilano Students’ Union, employees groups, and others within our CapU community.

The University will update and continue to maintain its own health and safety guidelines in alignment with updates to the Government’s Go-Forward Guidelines for the post-secondary sector, so that students, faculty and staff can return to campus safely.

Please know, the health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff remains our top priority. At every step, we will be working to ensure appropriate measures are in place for the health and safety of everyone in the university community.

Thank you for your patience as we navigate through the changes to welcome students back to campus safely. More details for fall 2021 will be announced in May. In the meantime, we encourage you to please check www.capilanou.ca/covid-19 for campus updates, news and information related to COVID-19.

We look forward to the day when rich opportunities to interact in-person are once again central to the CapU learning and teaching experience.
