    Keep your Bike Safe!
    Make sure you keep your bike safe and secure whilst you're at College.

    Unfortunately we have had a number of bikes stolen from the bike racks outside our main entrance. It's important that you have a good quality, solid lock for your bike.

    Did you know that you can store your bike in the Parkade for free? You will need to pay a $80 refundable deposit for a key fob but you will get this back when you leave the College or no longer need to use your bike.

    False Fire Alarms: the Consequences
    There are a number of fire alarm points throughout our building that are to be used only in a real fire.

    There will be serious consequences if you pull one of these alarms when there is not a fire.

    The college will deal severely with any students who start a false alarm. A suspension will be the minimum, and we could well decide to expel the student, and notify Canada Immigration that they are no longer a student in Canada.

    The student who activated the alarm will have to pay for any costs that the Fire Department charges Columbia College.

    We have video cameras in corridors and will catch anyone who pulls the alarm, whether it is an accident or not.

    If you do hear the fire alarm sound, please exit the building immediately using the emergency stairwells and move well away from the doors so that you are not blocking the exit for others. Please do not stop to collect your belongings from lockers. Once the alarm has finished sounding and if the building is declared safe, you will be allowed back in.

    Getting your Social Insurance Number (SIN)
    From 1st June, you no longer need to apply for a Work Permit to work off campus but you do need to get a Social Insurance Number (SIN) from Service Canada.

    To get your SIN, you need to have a valid study permit and a Confirmation to Work off Campus Document from CIC.

    It is currently taking four weeks (around 20 working days) for the Confirmation Document to be sent to students via e-mail.

    You need to collect a Confirmation of Enrolment Letter (speak to a Counsellor abour this) and apply online through the Case Specific Enquiry page. Information about this document is here. Make sure you input your Unique Client ID and File Number - these can be found on your Study Permit.

    If a student is studying ESL or preparatory courses he/she is only eligible to work while studying if they are completing additional post-secondary courses.

    More detailed information is available from:
