Important Notice Regarding COVID-19


The single highest priority of the Professional Development Institute (PDI) of the University of Ottawa will always be the health and safety of its participants, instructors and staff. In response to the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, the University has already taken a number of steps to reduce the risks and impact on our community and our campuses.

In light of urgent recommendations by public health officials that ‘social distancing’ is the most effective means of protecting participants, instructors and staff from infection, PDI has decided to postpone and reschedule all "in person" PDI courses and activities until January 1st inclusive with details regarding rescheduling to be provided as soon as possible.

The Institute continues to work together with clients, staff, instructors and partners to innovate delivery options!
