Numerous companies, including Canadian companies like OpenText and Shopify, have announced a permanent shift to remote working resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. We are committed to delivering the quality learning and student experience you expect from us, and we recognize the importance of on-campus, in-person experiences. The safety and wellbeing of our campus community remains our top priority, and the University will continue to work with public health officials to develop a plan for in-person activity, if conditions allow. This could mean clinical programs, smaller undergraduate classes or seminars and research-based graduate students working in labs. Any in-person activity will meet strict guidelines for physical distancing and other public health requirements.
We will operate on-campus supports and services as conditions allow. This could mean limited access to libraries or computer labs and other learning and personal resources. Timing for when and how we can make our campus available will depend on guidance from public health authorities.
