Institutions consider, adapt COVID-19 safety measures as provinces relax measures

Postsecondary institutions across Canada are considering their current COVID-19 safety measures and the changes and adaptations that might be made as provinces change their pandemic measures. The Government of Ontario has announced that it will end its vaccine certificate system in March, but some institutions will continue their vaccine policies. The 24 colleges represented by Colleges Ontario, as well as Western University, York University, the University of Guelph, and the University of Toronto will continue their vaccination policies for the remainder of the Winter semester. In Manitoba, the Brandon Sun states that Assiniboine Community College will be keeping its mask and vaccine mandates until May 2. The University of Alberta and the University of Calgary will suspend vaccination mandates when they resume in-person classes, but will keep masking requirements. Yukon University is delaying the implementation of its vaccine requirement until April 30.
