Confirming direction for fall term

Update for students and employees

Late last night, we received new instructions from the Ontario Government’s Ministry of Colleges and Universities and the Chief Medical Officer of Health that outline their direction to us for the fall term.

In particular, the government now requires that universities must implement a mandatory proof of vaccination program by September 7 and that we can relax some physical distancing measures in instructional spaces such as classrooms and labs.
