CFD`s primary concern is the health and safety of its staff, faculty and community as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation. After much consultation and on the advice of our federal and provincial governments, we have made the difficult but important decision to postpone all in person programming until further notice.
We are continuing to host our BPER rounds virtually and are accepting registrations for our fall programs.
We will continue to keep you updated as we navigate this uncertain time.
CFD is pleased to share a list of resources for virtual teaching and learning. This list includes quick tips and technological tools to get started with virtual teaching and education. Virtual Teaching & Learning
