IGK-reopening for in-class programs
BIG NEWS-International Gateway Kelowna will be REOPENING and accepting students for in-class programs starting on June 29, 2020 and weekly thereafter.
Canadian (Quebecois and new immigrants) and international students already residing in Canada will be the first students to return until the international border reopens. Not all programs or levels will be offered at this time so please contact us for a current selection.
IGK will be adhering to local health regulations and practicing 2 metre social distancing between students, teachers and staff. IGK has increased sanitation in all common areas and placed hand sanitizing stations around the campus. Students are encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizers as well for personal care. Masks and gloves are optional and up to each individual. School microwaves and water fountains won’t be available for use until further notice and students must bring everything they need for the day including sufficient water, cutlery, pens, pencils and stationary and cannot borrow supplies. There is a grocery store, pharmacy and stationary store across the street if supplies are required. Also, students are encouraged to go outside at lunch and break times to enjoy the fresh air.
For international students outside of Canada, the starting date will be dependent on the Canadian border reopening and other Government criteria, like self-isolation. Please check this link for current updates:
