COVID-19 Updates

In line with recommendations from the provincial and federal government, we are limiting our in-person operations, which may result in a delay in the processing of donations and issuing of tax receipts. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause. For updates on the College’s response to COVID-19 please see here.

  • Gifts-in-kind: Gift tangible and intangible assets ranging from program-specific learning equipment, automobiles, software, property, and much more that have a significant impact on programming and student learning.
