April 23, 2020

NorQuest College has announced that the permanent closure of their physical campuses in Whitecourt and Drayton Valley as of August 30th and move to an online delivery model. In a statement, NorQuest explains that the decision was based on the success of online delivery models during the COVID-19 pandemic and the cost savings that will be achieved through the move. “As we temporarily launched all programs to the online model due to the pandemic, it became clear that we can still deliver an exceptional student experience in a more efficient way,” said NorQuest Interim President Joan Hertz. “We appreciate the support of the communities in the region and look forward to continuing to deliver workforce-ready training, but in a new way.” NorQuest noted that their campuses in Wetaskiwin and Edmonton will continue to deliver programming as planned.
