Fall 2021: ElderCollege and Covid-19

Because the ElderCollege community is a cohort especially vulnerable to the Covid-19 virus, we are returning with great caution to a mix of in person classes and keep some classes on Zoom.

Covid-19 Precautions:

”For in person classes Elder College will follow all BC Government Health Orders and Guidelines. Accordingly masks are now mandatory in indoor areas and as of September 13th proof of vaccination will be required.”

For classes taking place using the popular Zoom platform, you may want to review the steps to use Zoom as explained on our webpage Instructions for using Zoom

In these Instructions you also find a summary of steps that ElderCollege is taking to keep all of us safe and ensure a positive experience.

  • We are offering 13 courses for Fall 2021.
  • Courses will start on August 25, 2021.
  • Online registration opened at 12 noon on Monday August 16, 2021.
  • You can see the preview of our courses being offered online.

The Sunshine Coast ElderCollege will continue to offer and expand on the same top quality courses and highly qualified instructors that our students have been accustomed to. Anyone over 55 who wants to keep on learning can take courses at the Sunshine Coast ElderCollege.
