The safety of the University of Northern BC’s students, faculty, staff and visitors during a pandemic is predicated on advance planning, as well as building awareness about how the plans will be implemented. UNBC’s community will be better prepared in an emergency if they know how the University will respond, where they can find information, and what they should do.

Key to that awareness is good communication. This site will be an essential tool for sharing plans and providing relevant information in case an emergency arises at UNBC or in the surrounding area.

Please bookmark this site, as you will find messages to the UNBC community with relevant information and direction in the event of an emergency.
