Why aren’t my classes showing up in Canvas?

There are a few possible reasons why your course may not be showing up in Canvas:

Not all UBC courses are associated with an online course. You may wish to check with your instructor to see whether they have created a Canvas course.

Your instructor may be using a different platform to deliver course content, such as UBC Blogs. (If that’s the case, check out our tips for staying organized while using multiple learning platforms).

Courses are made available in UBC Canvas only after they’ve been published by the instructor. Your instructor may choose to publish your Canvas course after the first day of class.

If you have “starred” or “favourited” a course, your other courses will not appear in your Canvas Dashboard until you “star” those courses as well.

To view all your Canvas courses, please select “courses” in the left-hand navigation menu and then click “all courses,” or visit

From here you can view all your courses and add/remove starred courses.

If you know that your course should be available in UBC Canvas but it’s not showing up, please contact the Information Technology Service Centre (ITSC) for assistance, using their online form.
