The Columbia Square Learning Centre and Virtual School BC are closed due to job action.

We do NOT know when we will re-open, so we are unable to advertise our registration schedule at this time. Please check with local news sources for information on the job action.

If you are an adult, over age 19, and want to register, you will be required to show THREE pieces of ID. ONE piece of ID to prove your status in Canada and TWO pieces of ID to prove your BC residency. Please click here to see what proper ID is required.

If you don't bring the proper ID, we can NOT register you. Please save yourself a trip and check to see if you have the proper ID.

If you are a NWSS student then please visit your NWSS counselor.
