ON exempts health-related classes from small class rule

December 8, 2020
The Government of Ontario has exempted health-related classes in postsecondary institutions in Toronto and Peel from the 10 person per instructional space rule, provided students are able to socially distance. 16 programs are affected by the exemption, including those in medicine, respiratory therapy, nursing, and personal support worker. The regulatory change will allow students in health-related programs to graduate and gain professional accreditation, ensuring that there are trained graduates who are ready to take frontline positions.
