Planning VCC’s safe return to campus

Posted on April 9, 2021

A message from the VCC Recovery Plan Working Group 

VCC's Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) has convened a Recovery Plan Working Group (RPWG) to ensure a safe, robust, and comprehensive process for a full return to on-campus activities this fall.

The RPWG has been meeting since March and is looking at strategies to continue to support a safe return to campus for all employees and students in September.

Over the coming months, much of the work the RPWG will be doing will be driven by provincial “Go Forward Guidelines,” which will be supplied by the BC Provincial Health Officer (PHO) and the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training in the coming weeks.

Given the complexity and needs of each department and area at VCC, the college community will need to approach returning to full capacity with the same commitment and care as was given to moving online and off-campus last year, and the limited return to campus last summer.

In the coming weeks, the RPWG will be connecting with departments to provide information and resources as they come available from the PHO.

For the broader VCC community, content at vcc.ca/covid-19 will be updated and organized to include facts and FAQs relevant to this next stage of the pandemic and our operations moving into the fall.

It is important to note that VCC has continued to operate essential learning activities safely on campus during the pandemic, and over the course of the past year, we have set an example of how to adapt to unprecedented challenges. We have every confidence that, over the next few months, we will be able to plan for a safe return in the fall. 

Please stay safe and continue to follow provincial guidelines and recommendations


Thank you,

VCC Emergency Operations Centre
and Recovery Plan Working Group
