Weather & Clothing

  • At RCCIT, students dress casually for classes (jeans, t-shirts and casual wear). Students may wish to bring some formal clothes for special occasions. Also be prepared for Canada’s four very distinct seasons. Students will need winter outerwear, such as a warm jacket and hat and gloves for cold temperatures from November to March. For more information on weather, please visit Environment Canada.


  • We recommend that students bring a copy of medical records.
  • If you suffer from a chronic medical condition, you should bring a short medical history (preferably in English).
  • Bring immunizations and test records
