Inclement weather procedures

Posted on November 23, 2015

VCC has a plan in place to ensure a timely and coordinated response to campus closures during bad weather.

The college will remain open during normal scheduled operations unless weather conditions pose a hazard to public safety.

VCC’s Director of Safety and Security will determine if the college should close. Road conditions are taken into account.

During a weather event, please check these sources before risking travel to either the Downtown, Broadway or Annacis Island campus:

VCC website
If the college is closed, an alert message will appear prominently on www.vcc.ca.

Social media
VCC’s social media channels will be updated.

Local media
VCC will send an advisory to local radio and TV stations. Recommendations: CKNW AM980 and News 1130.

A message will be recorded on VCC’s general phone line (604.871.7000).

Campus digital signage
An alert will be posted on campus digital signage. Digital signage is viewable from campus entry points.
