QC postsecondary institutions encouraged, not required to offer online courses during winter semester

January 13, 2021
A report from the Montreal Gazette says that Quebec postsecondary institutions are being encouraged to hold courses online during the winter semester. However, institutions will still be allowed to offer in-person classes, and essential in-person activities such as lab work and research will be allowed on campus. Libraries will also remain open. The province’s currently enacted curfew will still apply to all postsecondary institutions. “Over the past few months, students and all staff in higher education have shown exceptional and exemplary resilience,” says Danielle McCann, QC Minister of Higher Education.
