Current New Brunswick and Nova Scotia COVID-19 regulations must be followed by participants. 

Everyone who registers for in-person, indoor classes MUST SHOW PROOF OF FULL VACCINATION when registering for courses.

Participants will maintain 2 metres between each other at all times (unless they are members of a family/friends bubble).  

For indoor classes, masks are required to be worn when entering, moving around or leaving the classroom.

For outdoor classes, masks will be worn at the meeting location, but not while on the trails, as activity will be outdoors and physically-distanced.

Participants will travel in separate vehicles to out-of-town starting locations (unless members of a family/friends).

The Board and members of the Tantramar Seniors’ College would like to thank the Town of Sackville for their generous support through a grant awarded to the College.   We would also like to thank the Ville de Shediac for the grant awarded to the College and NBCC and the City of Moncton for providing free classroom space.  

NOTE:  Some people are very sensitive to perfume and other scents.  Please respect a scent free environment by not using scented products.  Thank you.
