Cancellation of CLN Trainings, Events and Site Visits
As the situation around COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to evolve, we are reaching out to let you know that CLN has been closely monitoring the situation, and reviewing our plans for all face-to-face training, events and Regional Meetings.
As of today, Monday, March 16th, all face-to-face trainings, events and site visits scheduled between March 17th and April 15th are cancelled.
Your safety and comfort are our first concern.
We will continue to monitor the situation, and plan to reschedule trainings when it is safe to do so.
CLN will ensure that any CALP staff booked into a training will receive a full refund. Your Regional Support Staff will be reaching out to you directly, if they have not done so already, to confirm your understanding of the refund process and cancellation of the event(s) you have registered for.
Those who are currently registered for a training will be contacted directly, to be given priority to register when we are able to confirm a new date.
Messaging from the CALP Team at Advanced Education
Earlier today, the following information was sent out from the CALP Team at Advanced Education:
Following the announcement Sunday from Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer that there are now indications of COVID-19 community spread, Alberta has increased its measures to limit the acceleration of the COVID-19 spread. These measures include mandating the suspension of post-secondary classes (campuses remain open), as well as closing K-12 schools and daycares.
Advanced Education advises the CALP system to take the same precautionary measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 and suspend in-person learning until further direction is provided.
We understand that CALP serves a vulnerable population and that your organization may be the only safe space in the community for your learners. It is up to your organization’s board and staff if you want to remain open to provide learner support services. Where possible, we encourage all CALP grant recipients to explore the online delivery of foundational programming online.
Should you choose to remain open, please refer to Alberta Health Services, for the best hygiene practices, the latest public health restrictions, and other information on COVID-19.
If you have any questions, please contact your grant manager.
