*Due to Covid-19 and being open for in person classes, CBC will have very limited availability for rentals during the school year of 2020/2021. There is also limited space still available for summer 2021, but we are open to enquiries about summer 2022. CBC will be requiring any groups using the college campus to have a plan in place related to Covid-19 that aligns with all guidelines put forward by the Provincial Government of BC or Provincial Health Authorities prior to use of college facilities. Film enquiries will be considered for periods when classes are not in session, until the school year is done or the pandemic has ended.
