Future Program Starts At CBBC Career College

At CBBC, our first priority is always the health and safety of our staff and students. It was for this reason that we temporarily paused all studies until such a time as we could plan for a safe return to school.

Unfortunately, the current COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a Director’s Order from Nova Scotia Labour and Advanced Education Private Career Colleges which does not permit the admission of new students to programs that have any immediate skill-based instruction, clinical components, or practicum type placements.

We do not know yet when the ministry will allow new classes to start. We have therefore decided to move all our spring 2020 intakes to the Fall. This means your program is secure and we will ensure you keep your place in the program of your choice! Should the moratorium lift before September, we will explore options of starting your programs at an earlier date. 

CBBC will keep in trust any tuition payments that have been made, either personally or through Student Assistance, and apply those payments to your program once you begin classes.  If you received money from Student Assistance, we recommend that you hold that aside to use once your program commences.

Please take a look at the table below to see when your program was originally scheduled to start, and when your new start date is set to begin. Note that new acceptance letters will be forwarded to you to reflect these changes.
