Weather Alert

Updated – 8:00 am Friday, February 22, 2019

Columbia College is OPEN today, Friday, February 22nd. All classes will proceed as scheduled.

Please allow yourself extra time for travel and dress warmly.  Remember that sidewalks may be slippery.


Occasionally bad weather will cause the College to be closed for the day. Columbia follows the lead of BCIT Downtown in deciding whether to close for the day due to bad weather. In the event of snow listen to the radio – if BCIT Downtown Campus is closed both Columbia College campuses (Main and North) will also be closed.  A school closure due to snow is posted on the BCIT breaking news page and on the Columbia College alert page as soon as is feasible.
