Winter Break Extension 2020/2021

Term starts January 11, 2021

Dear all students,

We know that you have faced significant uncertainty and disruption over the past several months. As the term comes to an end, First College has decided an important decision to acknowledge some of those challenges and provide some flexibility during this unprecedented time.

For students from the Health Care Assistant Program & the Registered Massage Therapy Program, your winter classes will now start on Monday, January 11, 2021.

For students from the Community Support Worker Program, your winter classes will now start on Wednesday, January 13, 2021.

Essentially, we are shifting the semester by one week.

The planned delay will give students a longer break to recharge and prepare for the term, and will allow for appropriate isolation procedures to be followed, if travelling.

We would like to thank every one of you for your hard work, flexibility, and resilience through all the challenges that COVID-19 has put in front of us. We hope the break brings you a chance to reconnect with loved ones and favourite activities, and to recharge and enjoy a restful holiday.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Warm Regards,


Director of First College
