Fibre Week

It is with great disappointment that Olds College Continuing Education has had to make the difficult decision to cancel most of Fibre Week 2021.  The cancellation of this event has been deemed necessary due to the current Alberta Health Services (AHS) restrictions, the limitations on travel at this time and the low enrollment numbers for the event. The health and wellbeing of our students, instructors, exhibitors, visitors and staff needs to come first during this time.

It is with great disappointment that Olds College Continuing Education has had to make the difficult decision to cancel most of Fibre Week 2021.  The cancellation of this event has been deemed necessary due to the current Alberta Health Services (AHS) restrictions, the limitations on travel at this time and the low enrollment numbers for the event. The health and wellbeing of our students, instructors, exhibitors, visitors and staff needs to come first during this time. 

UPDATE: It is with great disappointment that due to low enrolment numbers coupled with the current restrictions in travel and gatherings due to COVID that we have made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of Fibre Week 2021.  We understand the frustrations that this delay causes to our students in their educational journey, however the health and welfare of our staff and students needs to come first.
 
Many students have enquired about off campus offerings in the fall, however  at this time we are not looking at any off campus offerings until such time as travel restrictions have been lifted and COVID is no longer such a risk for our staff and students.  


Our Con Ed team will begin cancelling classes and arranging for refunds this week.  Please note that it may take up to 2-3 weeks for you to receive your refund, however they will be processed as quickly as possible.  You do not need to reach out to the College as all students and vendors currently registered will receive a 100% refund.

To those who have booked accommodations (either at Olds College or elsewhere) it will be your responsibility to cancel your reservations.

Please know that this is disappointing for everyone involved, however at this time it is in everyone's best interest.  We look forward to Fibre Week 2022 being the best ever!
