Like you, SICA has been closely monitoring the ongoing global spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). We have made the decision to restrict attendance in our upcoming courses and suspend upcoming SICA events.
As COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving situation, please know that SICA will continue to monitor and share information with our membership as new details emerge.
HealthLinkBC has information about COVID-19 symptoms and BC CDC Latest on the Novel Coronavirus.
At this point in time, our offices are remaining open. We ask that you please only visit our office if necessary and to please call ahead to make an appointment for stat dec services. Documents and Seals can be purchased on our website and will be mailed to you.
Please stay home if you are feeling ill, have traveled or have been in contact with someone who has traveled recently.
If you are registered to attend we will be issuing full refunds today. When conditions improve, we will begin to reschedule events. The canceled events are:
- March 24 - Kelowna Women in Construction
- March 25 - Kamloops Women in Construction
- April 7 - Kelowna Construction Month Breakfast
- April 22 - Kamloops Construction Month Breakfast
We know how critical it is for students to get the certifications they require to work, and for now, we are continuing to hold limited attendance safety training in our SICA Training Centre.
We are taking increased precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of our staff, trainers, and students are maintained.
We ask all students to reschedule if you are feeling ill, have traveled or have been in contact with someone who has traveled recently. Students showing any symptoms of being sick will be sent home immediately.
We are happy to reschedule your course to accommodate your needs at no extra cost.
