Graduation Ceremonies Update

Assiniboine chose to cancel its June 2020 graduation ceremonies in line with COVID-19 guidelines. At that time we asked graduates to “Save the Date” for smaller school-based ceremonies in the fall of 2021. Walk-through grad events were hosted in October 2020 adhering to the public health guidelines in place at that time. See 2020 Graduation Events for details on how we hosted those walk-through events.

We are now beginning to plan similar walk-through events for June 2021. These events will follow all public health guidelines in place at that time including physical distancing guidelines and COVID-19 protocols. Note that these events may need to be cancelled at short notice if provincial and federal guidelines change.

Save the Date

Registration will open in mid-April and information will be emailed to students closer to this time.

President Mark Frison surprises 2020 graduates

For six Assiniboine graduates, a surprise came early when college president Mark Frison hand-delivered their parchments in June 2020. Certificates and diplomas were presented to each graduate, abiding by the provincial public health recommended physical distance.
