Change can be stressful, and adapting to change often means finding new ways of working.

As the College reopens in lockstep with provincial guidelines, the College has developed resources to equip staff and faculty with methods to build the resilience, empathy and accountability that shape an enabling culture. Empowering our community is an essential part of our cultural DNA.
