Eastern College continues to work with the provinces to ensure the continuity of learning for our students while meeting provincial Public Health guidelines. We continue to deliver education remotely at this time in the province of New Brunswick, with on-campus, in-class instruction reserved for programs where the academic outcomes cannot be achieved remotely. In Nova Scotia, the NS Department of Labour and Advanced Education has required that students return to campus for in-class instruction, and our Halifax campus students have started a phased-in return to campus for all programs.
