The College will be moving into space on the main floor of College Place. Once renovations are complete, the College will be relocating reception and some other services from the fifth to the main floor of College place. Scheduled for early next year, the move will improve access to services for the public, registrants and other stakeholders.
The print version of the Summer College Update that was mailed to registrants incorrectly stated that the fall 2018 Kootenay Dental Society lecture will be in Nelson.
