Canada’s postsecondary institutions to host virtual open houses

October 21, 2020

A number of institutions across the country are preparing to host their fall open houses virtually. Schools are using online event platforms in order to facilitate the experience, and are running the events over a number of days. On the west coast, Okanagan College will be conducting interactive Zoom presentations with prospective students. In Alberta, Lethbridge College will also be hosting Zoom sessions, while MacEwan University has planned self-guided virtual tours, information sessions, and virtual booths and chat rooms. In Ontario, Lakehead University is incorporating a “virtual backpack” that students can use to explore various exhibits to collect resources. Université du Québec à Montréal is also hosting webinars, chatrooms, and virtual tours, while Dawson College has scheduled chat sessions for individual services and programs.
