New!  BC Dogwood Planner

The Ministry of Education, Student Certification Branch, has developed the new BC Dogwood Planner, an annual document published in January for students in Grade 12. The BC Dogwood Planner is a companion document of the Grad Planner addressing the top questions from students in their graduation year. We encourage schools to share this document in print or online form with their Grade 12 students. The link for the BC Dogwood Planner is: http://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/DownloadAsset?assetId=591FF4D8767C417FBB505DA8847D83CE​
