Postsecondary institutions across Canada have responded to rising COVID-19 cases by making changes to the delivery of the beginning of their Winter semester to keep students safe. In British Columbia, institutions such as Simon Fraser University, the University of Northern British Columbia, and the University of Victoria announced that they would begin the semester online. Some institutions in Alberta, such as the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary, will complete their first three weeks of instruction online. In Manitoba, Brandon University has delayed the start of classes by a week so that they can move online, while Assiniboine Community College will hold the first two weeks of some programs online.
