Confederation limits class size, changes schedules in response to ON’s COVID-19 regulations

January 14, 2021
Ontario’s new guidelines for postsecondary institutions means that Confederation College will be changing schedules and cutting the number of students in classes. Since COVID-19 regulations limit Confederation to having 10 students within a classroom, some students in programs with enrolment exceeding that have been dropped from their classes. CBC reports that the impact is being particularly heavily felt in apprenticeship programs. “We have about 1,100 to 1,200 students that still have face-to-face delivery here at the campus,” said Neil Cooke, VP academic at Confederation. “[A]ll of those students right now, with the exception of health are limited to a 10 student per class limit.” CBC (ON)
