Travel Guidance

Now that BCIT has entered the Step 3 Transition Phase, under direction from the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training and the Provincial Health Officer, we would like to provide an update regarding BCIT-related travel guidelines.

For students, BCIT-related travel is typically related to field school trips, practicum placements, international field schools, study abroad, conferences, and events. For staff and faculty, BCIT-related travel is typically related to conferences, meetings, professional development travel, and any other travel that represents the Institute.
