Institutional Preparedness

CanPacific is committed to operating in a way that prioritizes the health and safety of students, staff, faculty, and communities. Please note that our physical classrooms remain closed. For the time being, our programs are only available online. However, we would like to provide an update on the safety measures that have been developed in preparation for the reopening. Please check the useful links at the bottom of the page if you need more information on travel restrictions, the COVID-19 situation in Ontario, and more.

Monitoring and Screening for COVID-19

We have developed comprehensive measures for screening all students, staff, and visitors for COVID-19 symptoms in order to prevent any possible spread of COVID-19.

In terms of the passive screening measures, all students, staff and faculty will be required to complete the COVID-19 screening survey before leaving home. As part of our active screening efforts, everybody will be screened for observable COVID-19 symptoms upon arrival at CanPacific. We will also provide training on the symptoms of COVID-19 to all students, staff, and faculty.

Physical Distancing

Our physical distancing measures include limiting occupancy in the classrooms and communal spaces, spacing student desks and seating at least two meters apart, installing physical distancing markings and plexiglass partitioning, staggering timetables, adapting in-class activities, cancelling field trips, providing virtual lessons and virtual social activities.

Sanitizations

Strict protocols on cleaning and disinfecting the premises will be observed. Public spaces and high-touch surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected multiple times per day using approved hard surface disinfectants.

Staff and Student Hygiene

Sanitation stations are available in each classroom and communal space. They are equipped with hand sanitizers, paper towels, adequate respiratory hygiene products, and closed bins for hygienic disposal.

Sings on the appropriate hand washing techniques and cough/sneeze etiquette are displayed on the premises. Training in effective hand washing and the cough/sneeze etiquette will be provided.

Please note that all students, staff, and faculty must abide by the Public Health and CanPacific requirements related to physical distancing, hygiene, and sanitation.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Staff, faculty, students and essential visitors must wear non-medical masks or face coverings on the school premises. Training on how to properly use personal protective equipment will be provided. If you need a mask, please let us know.

Protecting Mental Health

Recognizing that students, staff and faculty may be experiencing stress and uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are happy to provide the following resources for supporting mental health and emotional well-being:

Promotion of Accurate COVID-19 Information and Anti-stigma and Anti-racism Support

Case Management and Outbreak Response Plan

A comprehensive case management and outbreak response plan has been developed to quickly and effectively respond to any suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case if it occurs. Please contact us if you have any questions.
