MB, SK postsecondary institutions announce changes, monitor COVID-19 situation

December 20, 2021
Due to rising concerns about COVID-19 cases, several institutions in Manitoba and Saskatchewan have issued updates to their communities about their plans for the new term. The University of Winnipeg has announced that it will be shifting online in the winter term, with most courses delivered virtually until the end of reading week and employees working virtually where possible. The University of Manitoba anticipates that its phased reopening will continue and is requiring students to provide proof of vaccination to attend campus in the Winter semester. Red River College Polytechnic is reviewing its approach for the Winter semester, and the University College of the North is continuing to monitor the situation. In Saskatchewan, Parkland College and Southeast College have both announced new vaccination and testing requirements for entry to campus.
