The College is closely monitoring COVID-19. We recognize that the COVID-19 situation is unprecedented, uncertain and challenging for the public, clients and registrants. To support you, we have been publishing information on our website and social media channels as quickly as we can.

This is a rapidly changing situation, so we ask that all registrants make a regular habit of checking this page for the most up to date information. If we each do what is necessary, we will make a difference. Know that we are in this together.
