Information & Updates
COVID-19

For the current fall semester, our campus has re-opened using a hybrid model of delivery – meaning a combination of faculty-led remote teaching and learning for those components of our programs that can be delivered remotely, and in-person delivery of the hands-on learning experiences that must take place on campus.  On-campus instruction will take place as restrictions are lifted, and in a manner that reflects our commitment to the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff.

For immigration related questions, or questions regarding May and September intake for International Students please contact internationaladvising@cambriancollege.ca.

COVID-19 Case Procedure

Cambrian College has implemented a number of preventative measures and established controls to protect the health and safety of everyone that accesses its campuses. There is, however, always a risk of someone contracting the COVID-19 virus at the College just like in any other public setting. Cambrian has established a procedure to manage instances of a COVID-19 case on Cambrian College’s campus and satellite sites. This procedure concerns all individuals who have access to campus and/or our satellite sites including student, staff, faculty, external partners and other professional that may have a work agreement with the College. Please stay tuned for more up-to-date information as we continue to work with Public Health authorities.
