COVID-19 Update (05/23/21)

We are carefully following Public Health Nova Scotia’s Coronavirus response, and plan to offer adaptable programs this summer. While our hope is to offer fully in-person programs, we’re also working on developing hybrid in-person/online and fully online program options should these become necessary.
