All in-person courses are cancelled effective Monday, March 16

by Baldev S. Gill, Chief Executive Officer

The Board is cancelling all in-person courses and lab classes held at the Board, effective Monday, March 16 to protect members and Board staff from the risks posed by COVID-19. Instead, we are preparing to schedule PDP, Legal Update courses and some lab classes by webinar. We’ll provide information on these alternatives early next week.

Internally, we’re implementing contingency measures to ensure minimal interruption to FVREB operations. Most staff, for example, are being equipped with the capability to work from home should the Board be required to shut down due to COVID-19.

As well, we urge you to stay home if you feel ill and avoid all non-essential travel.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact our education department by calling 604-930-7644 or email
