Update for students re: St. Clair and Lambton College labour disruption (Oct. 16, 2017)

October 16, 2017

​Ontario's college faculty, as represented by OPSEU, has not reached a contract deal with the College Employer Council. As a result, all public colleges in Ontario are currently involved in a strike action as of Monday, Oct. 16, including St. Clair and Lambton College.

Dual Credit Program

As a result of the labour disruption, the Lambton Kent District School Board's Dual Credit Program will be suspended for the duration of the job action. Dual Credit classes will resume once the job action has ceased.

Our partners at Lambton and St. Clair College have been working diligently to put plans in place to ensure that students' achievement is not negatively impacted by the labour disruption.

SWAC Program

SWAC classes will continue throughout any labour disruption, however, they will be relocated off-campus at the following locations:

  • Lambton College Secondary SWAC – Adult Education (660 Oakdale Avenue, Sarnia)
  • Lambton College Adult SWAC – Adult Education (660 Oakdale Avenue, Sarnia)
  • St. Clair College Secondary SWAC – Chatham Kent Secondary School, Room 105 (285 McNaughton Ave E, Chatham)
  • St. Clair College Adult SWAC - Chatham Kent Secondary School, Room 204 (285 McNaughton Ave E, Chatham)

Updates about the labour disruption will be provided to Dual Credit and SWAC students using the Remind app.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact Janice Wranich, Special Projects Teacher, Dual Credits at

Options Program

Additionally, the Options Program at St. Clair College has been temporarily relocated to Chatham-Kent Secondary School. The Transportation Department has made arrangements for the bus to reroute, as necessary. The program will be held at Chatham-Kent Secondary School for the duration of the labour disruption.

Anyone with questions or concerns about the Options Program is encouraged to contact Sandra Perkins, System Coordinator for Special Education, at or 519-336-1500, Ext. 31478.
