A message from Dr. Steve Conway, Vice President & Associate Provost, Canadian Programs regarding winter quarter:

Dear CityU students,

As the fall quarter is well underway, we begin to shift our attention to the upcoming winter quarter. As we have been since spring, we continue to follow the guidelines from government and provincial health authorities about exactly when we can return to campus safely and what guidelines we must follow when we do. Like of our peer institutions in both British Columbia and Alberta, we believe it is in the best interest of our students, faculty, and staff to continue to offer all courses normally scheduled as in-class or mixed mode via an online synchronous format throughout winter quarter as we have done for the last several quarters.

If further guidance from the appropriate authorities suggests we are able to safely return to campus at some point in winter, we will announce a comprehensive plan to begin doing so. Until then, please arrange to continue your studies with the current delivery format in the winter quarter.

City University in Canada will continue to prioritize the health and well-being of all students, faculty and staff. Thank you for your continued understanding as we navigate current circumstances as a community of learners.


Dr. Steve Conway, PsyD

The City University Difference

City University of Seattle in Canada is a not-for-profit, accredited institution that has offered post-secondary academic programs in Canada since 1984. Our Canadian-made programs have focused on preparing working adults to meet the complex and diverse challenges faced within the areas of education, human services and management including our current degree offerings: Master of Education (School Counselling or Leadership), Master of Counseling and Bachelor of Arts in Management.

Fully Canadian based, each of our programs have been designed by Canadian faculty to meet the needs of the local communities we serve. At CityU, our core faculty are practitioner-scholars who bring the lived experience of professional practice supported by the latest thinking and research into the classroom. Our small class sizes and experienced faculty provide a unique student learning environment with real case studies and hands-on practical experiences which ensure that our graduates are ready to succeed in their chosen career paths. Supervised internships further the application of theory to professional practice in both the Master of Counselling and Master of Education programs.

Our students study in online synchronous cohorts, supported by experienced advisors and senior faculty, to build a strong sense of community, an environment of mutual support, and to create networking opportunities. Designed for working adults, our programs are offered in a variety of formats and locations to allow students to plan their studies around work, family and life.

Offering degrees in Western Canada and beyond, CityU has approximately 700 students, 75 faculty and staff and more than 2,000 alumni in Canada.
