COVID-19 Update

CNC is continuing an academic year like no other. We have six simple suggestions to help you be safe and healthy during your studies.

Know your program’s start date

The general start date for CNC’s winter term (January to April 2021) is now January 11th 2021. That’s a week later than first planned. But specific programs may have different start dates. View the academic calendar for your individual program schedule.

For international students

 visit our COVID-19 information page for CNC’s International Students Safe Arrival Guide. It will tell you more about laws, travel, quarantining when you arrive, and beginning your studies.

Follow provincial health orders and CNC rules

  1. Check your health every day. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, shortness of breath), self-isolate right away and seek medical advice by calling 8-1-1 or visit HealthLinkBC;
  2. Keep two meters of physical distance from others at all times;
  3. Wear a mask in any indoor public area on campus; and
  4. Clean your hands regularly. Wash with soap and warm water or use alcohol-based hand gel.

Provincial health orders can and will change. We will provide the latest as we know it at

Safety training for all students
