*Currently, students will participate in in-person work-integrated learning at the employer host’s location. As the pandemic continues to evolve, this may change at the employer host’s request to a remote field placement. Should this change occur, students will be communicated with as soon as possible.

** For CTA & CTAP, as LSO accredited programs, in the event that the government were to remove restrictions on public gatherings and physical distancing, the Law Society of Ontario (LSO) will require a return to in-class instruction for accredited paralegal programs within 60 days. Until that time, all CTA and CTAP courses will be remote.
