The new measures announced by the provincial government to reduce the spread of COVID-19 will not affect the delivery of the winter semester. Limited on-campus activities will continue as scheduled.

With high COVID-19 case counts continuing, many of us are struggling to stay positive. Limiting our social interactions is the best way to keep our community safe, but it can feel isolating and frustrating.   

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the stress of these difficult times, support is available through the Employee and Family Assistance Program provider Shepell FGI. In addition to mental health support and professional counselling services, the program offers information and resources related to children, elder care and other family services.
