NorQuest College’s first priority is to keep you and our community healthy and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. With news from the provincial government, this is what you need to know:
- All in-person classes are cancelled until further notice.
- In instances where online or alternative instruction is not feasible (such as fire rescue), due to requirements for specialized facilities, equipment, or hands-on learning, NorQuest will be exploring opportunities to defer training to a later date.
- The college will remain open and staff will be available to answer your questions; however, all in-person classes are cancelled.
