Time: 10:00 –11:00 a.m. PDT
Where: Online via GoToWebinar
BCCIE invites stakeholders from British Columbia's private post-secondary institutions and language schools for a discussion focusing on the experiences, challenges, and opportunities facing institutions in light of the impacts brought on by COVID-19. 
Topic areas will cover various issues identified by our recent survey that prioritized a number of concerns for the sector, including implications for fall intake, financial implications for smaller private institutions, shifts towards labour market programs (nursing, technical trades, etc.), and unique challenges for language schools. We will look at recovery as a key focus of the session.
