The Government of Alberta mandated the cancellation of all K-12 classes, post-secondary classes, and daycares due to the "unprecedented" threat of COVID-19.  We are committed to monitor the recommendations provided by the government to ensure we do what is best for the health of Albertans broadly.  We are also following similar requirements of post-secondary as well as those of our stakeholder employers as we not only educate but change lives through solid employment. 

In the coming days and weeks, we will post updates on our website and via our social media channels as more information is available.  

We kindly ask for your patience and understanding as we work through the implications for current students, prospective students, staff, instructors, residents, and stakeholders within the Women Building Futures community.
