What you can expect
It's been a great start to the fall semester with more students learning on campus and accessing select on-campus services and activities.
Fall-term programs are being delivered in both online and hybrid formats.
Revised vaccination policy
As the Delta variant of concern continues to hit communities across the country with its increased transmissibility and disease severity, we have revised our COVID-19 vaccination policy. We made this change to maintain our commitment to bringing more students and employees on-campus as safely and as soon as possible.
The following requirements come into effect immediately:
- All students, employees, contractors and volunteers coming onto college premises are required to be fully vaccinated by November 1, 2021. (Individuals are deemed to be fully vaccinated 14 days after having received their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.)
- In order to comply with the policy, individuals will need to receive their first dose by September 20, 2021, and their second dose by October 18, 2021, at the latest.
- The College will support access to vaccinations by hosting Toronto Public Health vaccination clinics on campus starting September 20, 2021.
- The college will abide by its commitments under the Ontario Human Rights Code and consider accommodation requests based on medical and/or religious/creed grounds.

On-campus activities follow Toronto Public Health guidelines. Please note that we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and make decisions based on the latest guidance from Toronto Public Health. Our health and safety protocols are subject to change as guidance from public health evolves.
Winter 2022 semester
Vaccination rates in Toronto are strong and we anticipate we’ll be able to provide even more in-person learning for the Winter 2022 semester. Check back for updates on how programs will be delivered (online, in-person, or hybrid) and which services and activities will be available on campus this winter.
