At CanPacific, we have been working hard on preparing the school for the reopening of our physical classrooms. We are planning to resume in-class instruction in the near future. Since public health and safety is our priority, we have developed special protocols. The special measures include:
- Mandatory face coverings
- Classroom occupancy limits
- Rearranged classroom seating
- Physical distancing measures
- Hand sanitizers provided in each classroom and common area
- Staggered start and break times so as to minimize congestion and traffic in common areas
- Monitoring of students and staff for COVID-19 symptoms
- Delivery of virtual lessons
Training and orientation sessions on the aforementioned measures are going to be provided for the staff and students prior to the physical reopening of CanPacific.
The reopening date has yet to be determined. Further updates will be posted on this page.
Please note that our virtual lessons are available. If you would like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
CanPacific Updates and COVID-19 Responses as of March 18, 2020
CanPacific continues to monitor the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak and responses, including the responses and recommendations from the Ontario Ministry of Health, Toronto Public Health and government travel advisories.
As a preventative measure aimed at promoting physical distancing, CanPacific moved its high-quality language instruction to virtual classrooms on March 18th, 2020. Since then, our certified instructors have been delivering live lessons via an online platform.
We would like to assure you that our program curricula, course materials, and schedules have not changed. We would also like to reassure you that we remain committed to a practical, student-centered, and communicative teaching approach. The online platform that we use allows for simultaneous interaction among all participants via group video-conferencing. There is a built-in whiteboard that can be used by the teacher and the students. The participants can share screens, send each other files, deliver presentations, engage in speaking activities, and more.
Considering that our virtual classroom lessons have been well-received, we plan to continue using the online platform until public health authorities deem physical distancing as no longer necessary for all educational institutions. As a community, and for everybody’s benefit, we must follow the recommendations of public health authorities and take preventative measures during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Of course, we will keep you informed as to any changes or developments.
Please take good care of yourselves, and we look forward to seeing you in our virtual classrooms.

For future students:
We would like to inform you that CanPacific has switched to distance learning as a temporary measure in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though our classes are conducted online, the virtual classroom experience closely resembles that of a physical one. We continue to provide the programs based on the same curricula. Our staff members work hard to provide our current and future students with the support and the resources that they need.
Taking the current situation into account, the enrolment and registration procedures have been adjusted slightly. All communication is done online. The placement tests must be completed through our official website. The results will be sent to you by email. Once registered, your counselor will provide you with the orientation via the Internet. You will also receive your timetable by email. The instructor will provide you with further details on how to join the virtual classroom lessons. Class materials will be distributed through the online platform or by email.
