Ottawa, March 3, 2017– On February 28, 2017, the receiver in charge of Cornerstone Language School decided to end the school’s operations. Since the problem arose, Languages Canada, its members and employees have been hard at work to minimize any inconvenience that students may suffer.
“We are very sorry that students and staff have been impacted by this event and promise to move quickly,” says Languages Canada’s executive director, Gonzalo Peralta. “We are working with the receiver and the Ontario government to ensure the best outcome possible, and to allow students to continue their studies in nearby schools.”
Currently, 49 students are affected by the closure of Cornerstone, and most should be placed in new programs by Monday, March 6. There are a number of future students who will also be affected. Languages Canada is still reviewing these records. Cornerstone was part of KGIC Inc., which is in receivership. The three other language schools part of the KGIC Inc group (SEC, KGIC, PGIC) are still in operation and Languages Canada is monitoring the situation closely. Gonzalo Peralta states, “We will stand behind our commitment to ensure that students receive the language studies for which they paid.”
All student requests, regarding these possible closures, should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
