    Fibre Week 2021Important Note about 2020 Fibre Week: Our Continuing Education team is cancelling Fibre 2020 classes and arranging for refunds. 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.
