WATERLOO, Ont. (THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 2020) – Today, the Minister of Health, the Honourable Patty Hajdu, announced the Government of Canada’s Mental Health Promotion Innovation Fund (the MHP-IF), currently funded at $6.6 million over 2 years. Through the MHP-IF, a new Knowledge Development and Exchange Hub (KDE Hub) will support and amplify the work of 20 diverse projects focused on optimizing mental health and its promotion among young Canadians.
Renison University College supports the #ScholarStrike action that is taking place at colleges and universities across North America on September 9 and 10.
We respect and support the rights of all faculty, staff and students who wish to participate in this action. This aligns very closely with the work that Renison has been pursuing in this area including the national anti-racism conference that Renison hosted last November, the anti-racism dialogue hosted by Dr. Kofi Campbell two weeks ago, and the ongoing development of Renison’s anti-racism task force, currently being led by Dr. Kathy Hogarth. We recognize that change can not happen without real action.
Presented in partnership with the Waterloo Public Library. The Honourable Bardish Chagger and an esteemed panel of experts and activists came together for an action-oriented discussion around exploding the barriers to equity and decolonization within our organizations.
