Colleges and universities across Canada have responded to the COVID-19 pandemic with detailed action plans to ensure both the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff, as well as the continuation of education as the younger generation embarks on building their future.
Packing up and moving presents a certain level of stress on its own, never mind the addition of slight differences in COVID response guidelines from province-to-province.
