As our community continues to take precautions to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are also working hard to preserve the academic semester and to continue to deliver a quality education to our students.
We are continuing to monitor the situation and will update accordingly.
Physical distancing means reducing close contact with others in the community. That means limiting your contact with people in all these places:
If you are with other people, you should not shake hands, and you should stand several feet apart from them.
Most importantly you should stay home if you feel sick.
ਇਕੱਠੇ ਮਿਲ ਕੇ, ਅਸੀਂ ਇਕ ਦੂਜੇ ਦੇ ਵਿਚਕਾਰ ਸਰੀਰਕ ਦੂਰੀ ਬਣਾਈ ਰੱਖਣ ਲਈ ਸੁਚੇਤ ਕੋਸ਼ਿਸ਼ ਕਰ ਕੇ ਕੋਵੀਡ -19 ਦੇ ਫੈਲਣ ਨੂੰ ਹੌਲੀ ਕਰ ਸਕਦੇ ਹਾਂ. ਸਮਾਜਿਕ ਦੂਰੀਆਂ ਫੈਲਣ ਸਮੇਂ ਬਿਮਾਰੀ ਦੇ ਫੈਲਣ ਨੂੰ ਘਟਾਉਣ ਦੇ ਸਭ ਤੋਂ ਪ੍ਰਭਾਵਸ਼ਾਲੀ ਤਰੀਕਿਆਂ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਇਕ ਸਾਬਤ ਹੋਈਆਂ ਹਨ.
ਇਸਦਾ ਅਰਥ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਦੂਜਿਆਂ ਨਾਲ ਨੇੜਲੇ ਸੰਪਰਕ ਨੂੰ ਘੱਟ ਤੋਂ ਘੱਟ ਕਰਨ ਲਈ ਤੁਹਾਡੇ ਰੋਜ਼ਾਨਾ ਕੰਮਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਤਬਦੀਲੀਆਂ ਕਰਨ ਦਾ ਅਰਥ ਹੈ:
CNC has a responsibility to provide a safe and healthy work and learning environment. During this global pandemic we must all do our part. CNC security and staff will speak to anyone not practicing physical distancing on campus. If a person refuses to comply to physical distancing guidelines, they will be requested to leave campus. If there are any concerning behaviours with the request to leave campus, further consequences may occur including possible student suspension or student expulsion.
ਸਮਾਜਕ ਦੂਰੀਆਂ ਨਾ ਹੋਣ ਦੇ ਨਤੀਜੇ ਕੀ ਹਨ ?
ਸੀ.ਐੱਨ.ਸੀ. ਦੀ ਜ਼ਿੰਮੇਵਾਰੀ ਬਣਦੀ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਉਹ ਇੱਕ ਸੁਰੱਖਿਅਤ ਅਤੇ ਸਿਹਤਮੰਦ ਸਿਖਲਾਈ ਦਾ ਵਾਤਾਵਰਣ ਪ੍ਰਦਾਨ ਕਰੇ। ਇਸ ਵਿਸ਼ਵਵਿਆਪੀ ਮਹਾਂਮਾਰੀ ਦੌਰਾਨ ਸਾਨੂੰ ਸਾਰਿਆਂ ਨੂੰ ਆਪਣਾ ਹਿੱਸਾ ਲੈਣਾ ਚਾਹੀਦਾ ਹੈ. ਸੁਰੱਖਿਆ ਅਤੇ ਕਾਲਜ ਸਟਾਫ ਨੂੰ ਕਿਹਾ ਗਿਆ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਉਹ ਕਿਸੇ ਨਾਲ ਵੀ ਗੱਲ ਕਰੇ ਜੋ ਸਮਾਜਿਕ ਦੂਰੀਆਂ ਦਾ ਅਭਿਆਸ ਨਹੀਂ ਕਰ ਰਿਹਾ ਹੈ, ਜੇ ਕੋਈ ਵਿਅਕਤੀ ਪਾਲਣਾ ਕਰਨ ਤੋਂ ਇਨਕਾਰ ਕਰਦਾ ਹੈ ਤਾਂ ਉਸ ਵਿਅਕਤੀ ਨੂੰ ਕੈਂਪਸ ਛੱਡਣ ਦੀ ਬੇਨਤੀ ਕੀਤੀ ਜਾਵੇਗੀ. ਜੇ ਕੈਂਪਸ ਛੱਡਣ ਦੀ ਬੇਨਤੀ ਨਾਲ ਕੋਈ ਵਿਵਹਾਰ ਹੋਣ ਤਾਂ ਇਸ ਦੇ ਨਤੀਜੇ ਹੋਰ ਵੀ ਹੋ ਸਕਦੇ ਹਨ ਜਿਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਵਿੱਚ ਵਿਦਿਆਰਥੀ ਦੀ ਮੁਅੱਤਲੀ ਅਤੇ ਜਾਂ ਵਿਦਿਆਰਥੀ ਦੀ ਬਰਖਾਸਤਗੀ ਸ਼ਾਮਲ ਹੋ ਸਕਦੀ ਹੈ.
Self-isolation means you do not have contact with other people.
People arriving from outside of Canada are required to self-isolate. That means you must stay home. Do not go to work or school. Keep watching for signs of illness 14 days after you arrive in Canada.
Campus housing will remain open and students are not being asked to or expected to leave housing at this time. The housing team can be accessed during regular hours as posted, in person or by text, phone, and email.

In response to the BC Government announcement regarding mass gatherings of more than 50, CNC has cancelled all public events until further notice to support the health and safety of our students, employees and community members.
This applies to all third-party activities, hosting of partner events, conferences, industry nights and extends to all campuses and facilities.
This is a difficult and uncertain time, and your mental health is important.
To help protect the health and safety of students and employees, we are strongly encouraging students to access counselling 250-561-5818 or 1-250-562-2131 Ext 5377 or by using the LifeWorks app. There are also a variety of self-help resources available online.
All interior doors that are not required to be open will be closed and locked
Only main entrances of each building be left unlocked.
No public access
CNC staff person hiring the contractor is responsible for ensuring the contractor(s) are signed in with Security, an email with required information would suffice.
Security and/or staff can more effectively monitor cameras for visitors entering the few entrances still are open.
Due to COVID-19, the CNC Bookstore has stopped all face-to-face interactions. All business, including the purchase of textbooks for intersession, has moved to the CNC Bookstore’s online shop. Orders made through the website will be processed and shipped three times a week.
Currently, the website features textbooks for the January term, which includes courses starting in January 2020 as well as trades classes running until May. The 2020 intersession term will be added to the website once more course requests and stock arrive.
For general inquiries, please contact the CNC Bookstore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CNC typically does not defer admission, but we are currently exploring options in light of COVID-19. Any decisions will be communicated to students and posted on cnc.bc.ca/COVID-19.
Since CNC is not cancelling classes, at this time the College's refund policy still applies. If a student cannot attend classes because of medical reasons or travel restrictions, CNC will evaluate those situations on a case-by-case basis.
For students in Continuing Education classes, please contact the Community & Continuing Education at email@example.com.
At this time, CNC has not cancelled or suspended May or summer programming. We will begin communicating to accepted students within a week about alternative plans for orientation.
CNC is transitioning classes to alternate delivery for the remainder of this semester. If the situation continues or worsens, we will aim to continue alternate delivery for May and summer programming.
The safety and health of students and our communities is our top priority. CNC recognizes these are critical methods of program delivery and students can therefore continue if the host organization permits their presence and social distancing and preventative measures are in place. Students who feel unsafe in their practicum should contact their instructor or Associate Dean to discuss alternatives.
Once classes have transitioned online, if you need to miss a class because you’re ill or need to self-isolate, follow the current process for reporting absences in your program.
It’s our top priority to move as much programming as possible to online platforms and alternate delivery formats. We are considering all delivery options to assist students to complete their programs and graduate with the necessary requirements.
CNC faculty used the three days between March 18th and 20th to finalize alternative delivery for almost all classes, including labs. If you have questions, please follow the directions from your instructors.
Shop classes are still being held in Trades and Technologies, following provincial direction on maintaining safe social distance. CNC is in daily contact with the Industry Training Authority (ITA) to ensure safety and compliance.
If you are a student in any Health Sciences program, please follow the directions from your faculty concerning labs.
CNC is working closely with training providers across the Province and BC Apprenticeship and the Industry Training Authority (ITA) on viable solutions to program delivery. We will continue to update you as additional information becomes available. Where feasible, alternate delivery is being utilized in all Trades programming
Please follow your instructor’s directions for how your program is being delivered in a safe manner.
To address the unique circumstances, we have adapted to the program completion and assessment as follows:
All blended SLEs for the foreseeable future will be cancelled.

The College of New Caledonia will continue to use existing grading models for the Spring 2020 (January-April) and subsequent semesters. CNC will not introduce a pass/fail option. This decision was made with great consideration, reflecting the requirements of our university-transfer and professional programs. CNC will continue to ensure the integrity of our students’ academic records, including students’ ability to progress through programs, have transfer options, be recognized by accrediting agencies, and continue to have access to scholarships and other funding opportunities. We encourage students to complete all coursework and have many options for academic support, including free one-on-one tutoring during this difficult time.
We recognize the particular challenges of the transition between modes of delivery, and will offer the following options to students:
As courses are being completed, students will not be eligible for a tuition refund.
Please be aware that withdrawing from courses may impact financial assistance or your immigration standing. Before exercising either option, we recommend and encourage you consult with Student and International Student Services, and with the appropriate funding and immigration agencies.
Please note: this applies to programs which run on the January to April semester. If your program semester runs beyond May 1, 2020, please continue to watch for updates.
All of the above questions also apply to international students. Some additional questions for International students specifically include:
