Holiday Travel 

As we approach the winter break we'd like to remind our community of current travel restrictions by the Provincial Health Officer (PHO). At this time, all non-essential travel should be avoided. This includes travel into and out of B.C. and between regions of the province. This PHO order is currently in effect through December 7 and may change or be extended at any time. 

Before making any international travel plans, you should carefully consider the impact quarantine may have on the start of your academic term and the limitations to your extended health benefits as you may not be fully covered while outside the country. As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, there may also be difficulties returning to Canada if travel restrictions increase or if you develop any symptoms while outside Canada. 

Students in Canada on a study permit should speak with an International Student Coordinator before leaving Canada. 

The Government of Canada continues to advise against all non-essential travel outside the country. Unless you are exempt, all international travellers returning to B.C. are required by law to self-quarantine for 14 days and complete the federal ArriveCAN application prior to their return. While you are in self-quarantine you will not be able to come to campus for any reason.

Spring Semester Registration 

We would like to remind you that Spring Semester 2021 registration is now open, and that you can use the Daily Quicklist tool to see which courses still have availability. This Spring Semester, most courses will be offered online. Those that require face-to-face delivery in order to meet educational goals will be offered in an on-campus or mixed-mode blended format with approved health and safety plans.  When registering for a course, visit our Course Schedule to see the delivery method for your course. 

Spring Semester Update: No parking charges during remote instruction  

As we are in a time of primarily remote instruction through to April 30, 2021, Langara has now extended free parking on campus through the spring. For students who will be attending those few classes on campus this spring, or for those who need to come to campus for the use of computer labs, no parking charges will be incurred.    

IT Outage this Saturday 

On Saturday, Nov. 28 from 3:00-9:00 pm, there will be a network maintenance that will impact the College’s IT systems. Several services may be unavailable for 30 seconds at a time during this maintenance period.   

As always, your feedback and questions can be sent to us at covidquestions@langara.ca. Our updates for students can be found on langara.ca/covid
