SFU, UBC, CapilanoU, UVic extend winter break

December 11, 2020
Simon Fraser University, the University of British Columbia, Capilano University, and the University of Victoria have extended their winter breaks for students. All four institutions have extended their winter breaks until January 11. SFU, CapilanoU, and UVic noted that the semester will end several days later. The extension is meant to give students and staff extra time to rest and prepare for the next semester. “Senate made the decision to extend the winter break to support student wellness during the pandemic,” says UVic Acting Vice-Provost Susan Lewis. “It also provides valuable time for our faculty and instructors to prepare for their courses.” UVic | CBC (BC)
