Class Cancellations

In the event of a storm, Providence will announce the cancellation of classes over CBC AM 990, CJOB AM 680, CHVN 95.1 FM, and AM1250/Radio Southern Manitoba. The announcement will also be put on our web page, Providence App, and on our social media platforms. Employees and students are expected to check the Providence home page and the Providence app for more detailed and/or updated information.
Depending on the severity of the situation, classes may be cancelled for the morning, for the whole day, or the school may be closed for the day.
  • When classes are cancelled for the morning only, the UC and Seminary Deans will reassess the situation by 10:00 a.m., and decide whether or not to cancel afternoon and evening classes as well.
  • In all circumstances where afternoon classes are cancelled, evening classes, rehearsals and practices will be cancelled as well. Faculty and students are expected to check the website, the campus wall, or call the receptionist regarding this change.
If no announcement is made regarding Providence, our classes will be on. If classes are cancelled, employees are not permitted to proceed with scheduled events at their own discretion. Although classes are cancelled, the school is not closed and employees are expected to come to work when and as they are able to do.  If a staff member has doubts about coming to campus, they should contact their immediate supervisor.   
  • In the event that a school closure announcement is made, employees will not be expected to make their way to campus. Exceptions to this rule may apply to those employees who are responsible for the safe operation of the campus, and the care of students in residence.
