University College of the North delays classes until January 10, 2022 and many courses will be delivered remotely

UCN’s first day of classes for the Winter Term will be one week later than initially planned. The first day of classes will be Monday, January 10, 2022.


UCN will also adopt remote delivery for most courses. While some courses that demand face-to-face learning will continue to be delivered in person, many others will convert to remote learning.


The decisions resulted from the Omicron variant, which Manitoba Public Health says poses a significant risk to our health and healthcare system.


"We know that remote learning is not the best for our students' academic success or mental health. However, remote learning is the responsible option we have before us given the circumstances," said Dan Smith, Vice-President of Academic and Research. "While UCN will seek to maximize stability and predictability for students, as circumstances warrant, UCN may consider a return to in-person learning for selected courses and programs."


University College of the North provides learning opportunities to northern communities while respecting diverse Indigenous and northern values.
