August 22, 2023: Wildfires are causing evacuation orders and alerts around the Okanagan Valley, including Kelowna. This memo is to provide information to our student body and the larger community. The situation is being brought under control and we are hopeful damage is minimal and life can return to normal in short order.  

Firstly, our campus remains open, and classes are in session. If you are unable to make it to your scheduled classes, please remember to inform your instructor or the Student Services department. If there is an imminent risk to the campus or feeder traffic routes, updated information will be shared here on this page.  


Please refer to the official, trusted sources of information, which are listed below. Consider signing up for alerts through these services to stay as up-to-date as possible.
