Institute closures

The British Columbia Institute of Technology has set out conditions for delivering a timely and coordinated response to the Institute closure due to snow conditions.

BCIT classes, services, and business will proceed as scheduled unless weather conditions pose a hazard to public safety or adversely affect the Institute’s ability to continue to office services.

BCIT takes into account weather and road condition information in determining whether road hazards and public safety conditions should result in closure of the Institute.

In the event of a Snow Closure information will be posted in the following locations:

  • BCIT homepage
  • SafetyWise App push notification
  • BCIT Alert; including mobile phone, work phone, and work email
  • student email
  • Social channels – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
  • Switchboard message
  • Direct email to local radio and TV media

Facilities Services have implemented a snow plan outlining the priorities for snow and ice response at BCIT campuses. View the priority response for each campus.

The BCIT Procedure on response to inclement weather is attached for detail.
