COVID-19 Updates and FAQs

Travelling to Canada

ICM’s COVID-19 Arrival Protocol & Safe Plan outlines important steps international travellers should take to safely travel and arrive in Winnipeg. If you’re planning to travel, download the COVID-19 Arrival Protocol & Safe Plan here.

Eligible students who choose to travel are recommended to plan their travel during a scheduled break between terms or before their program start date to ensure their studies are not impacted. Our team of Student Success Advisors are available online using the links in your Student Portal to further discuss your arrival questions one-on-one.

Latest Updates

Dear Students:

The safety and wellbeing of our students, instructors, and staff are top priority. As we navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic together, ICM will continue to offer courses both in person as well as remotely (online)* during our Summer (May) 2022 term to meet the diverse needs of our students.

Looking forward to the Fall (September) 2022 term, ICM is planning for a greater return to in-person activities while maintaining the availability of some remote (online)* courses for students who are not yet able to travel to Winnipeg. Students are encouraged to check this site as well as their emails often for additional updates and information.

When it comes to studying safely on campus, ICM and UM are continuing to make the wearing of masks mandatory on campus. While the University of Manitoba (UM) will no longer require staff, students or visitors coming to the campus to have proof of vaccination, the Government of Canada requires international students to qualify as a fully vaccinated traveller in order to enter Canada, unless they are a minor under the age of 18 years (note that minor students will still need to be fully vaccinated in order to board a domestic flight in Canada). ICM also continues to encourage students, instructors, and staff to be fully vaccinated as well as get a third dose (booster). All international students in Manitoba are eligible to get vaccinated through Manitoba Health or on campus through University Health Service, whichever is more convenient for them. UM will also continue to improve the ventilation systems on campus. Both ICM and UM also continue to ask anyone who is sick to stay home, and if you have a positive COVID-19 test, stay home for a minimum of five days.

For more information on how to learn and study safely on campus, please also refer to our Teaching and Learning Safely Student Guidebook.

We have put together this FAQ page to help you get the answers to the questions you may have regarding studying online, requirements for studying in person, COVID-19, and its impact on your studies. Please use the menu bar on the left-hand side of this page (above, if on a mobile device) to navigate to the page of most interest to your specific situation, whether it be general questions about the virus, questions about the current semester of study, or questions about future terms.

If your questions remain unanswered, please reach out to our team to assist you further. If you are a new/prospective student, please contact info@icmanitoba.ca. If you are a current student or alumni, please contact advisor@learning.icmanitoba.ca.

We want you to know that ICM will be here for you through the semester, the semester break, and the coming years of your studies in Canada. There is a lot of uncertainty now, but you are not alone, and we are going to be here with you every step of the way.

 

Sincerely,

Robert Daudet
College Director & Principal

*Note: While ICM will endeavour to offer several course options remotely (online), some ICM courses will be delivered exclusively in-person. Information about courses with mandatory in-person components will be communicated to students through the resources shared prior to enrolment.
