Kelowna-area campuses reopen, resume full operations in time for school year


As the status of the wildfires continue to improve in the Kelowna region, two institutions are resuming their campus operations. The Justice Institute of British Columbia announced that its Kelowna campus reopened this week and shared information about the supports available to those students impacted by this summer’s wildfires, including an Emergency Assistance Bursary. The University of British Columbia Okanagan campus stated that in-person classes will begin as scheduled next week. “We recognize that things have not returned to normal in all areas of our community and that many are still displaced or otherwise affected,” said a letter from UBCO. “The UBCO community will continue to stand with you through the course of rebuilding and recovery.”
