Premier Horgan was announcing the formal extension of the provincial state of emergency on March 31, 2020

On April 1, Premier Horgan at Victoria, together with Bruce Ralston, Minister of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources at Vancouver, announced the Government of British Columbia and BC Hydro are going to help people, small businesses and industries most impacted by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic by Waiving and/or Reducing their BC Hydro Bills.

BC Educators will have an easy-to-use video-conferencing and collaboration platform to communicate remotely with their students while in-class learning is suspended to prevent the spread of COVID-19.



The Ministry of Education has secured and funded licences for the application Zoom for all K-12 public and independent schools in B.C. This will allow consistent access for educators who choose to use it, giving them more ways to communicate with students and parents.

Continued learning will vary for each school depending on the needs of students. Some options include online learning tools and/or resource packages or assignments emailed or mailed from teachers to parents. For educators who choose to offer online learning, Zoom gives them a common, consistent platform to communicate and share lessons with their students.

To ensure safety and privacy for students, the licensing agreement complies with B.C.’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. School technology administrators can control permissions and privileges, while disabling features that are unnecessary or inappropriate. Students will be given a unique website address, so they can access their virtual classroom without needing an individual account. The Zoom server will be based in Canada, with added encryption so it is a safe platform to learn.

Educators will receive access to Zoom through their school districts this month, along with simple instructions about how to use the software.

While teachers and schools will have primary responsibility for continuous learning, government also launched Keep Learning BC on March 27, 2020: www.openschool.bc.ca/keeplearning

This is a central place where families can find ideas for everyday educational activities, links to free learning resources, as well as how to help children learn and how to ensure their well-being while they are at home. The websites will be updated on a regular basis with new materials. As of March 31, 2020, more than 136,000 visitors have accessed the Keep Learning BC website – an average of 33,786 a day.

Since there are many students who will have challenges working online, schools have also been directed to look at alternative approaches for continued learning that will fit with the individual needs and circumstances of their communities. Some school districts may also loan computer equipment or devices to support students while they learn from home.

Quick Fact:

A new ministerial order under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act enables the broader use of communications tools during the pandemic.
