Please read what Breath for Life is doing to keep you and its staff safe: Breath for Life’s commitment to Keeping you Safe.

By registering into this course you accept and understand that you have reserved a seat to attend your selected course on a given date and at a specified time (please ensure you understand the date and start time of your course). Your course is confirmed and Breath for Life commits to delivering the course you have registered into. Please read the following policies that apply to your registration.

As the province has lifted restrictions allowing the general population to enjoy public life once again, Breath for Life will not allow for a free rebooking (reschedule) or cancellation related to considerations around covid or any other illness and the policies outlined below apply. You are required to give Breath for Life ample time to reopen your reserved seat to the public so that another participant may occupy the reserved seat that you are vacating. Alternately, if you know of someone who can occupy your reserved seat, this will be allowed and your registration can be transferred to that person. If your seat remains vacant, Breath for Life will not allow for a reschedule and the policies outlined below apply.
