The World Health Organization (WHO) assessed COVID-19 as a pandemic on March 11, 2020, and the province of British Columbia declared a state of emergency seven days later. Within this context, MB Seminary will continue its mission of educating and equipping people to help lead the church, while also abiding by current government regulations and the decisions made by our ministry partners (please refer to updates made by Trinity Western University in Langley and Canadian Mennonite University in Winnipeg).
