COVID-19 and Canadian universities: Information and resources

Canada’s universities are on the front lines of mitigating risks and finding solutions to the COVID-19 pandemic. While universities continue to prioritize the health, safety and wellbeing of their students, faculty, staff and broader communities, they are also springing into action to support Canada’s critical needs in this time of crisis. Universities are mobilizing human resources and infrastructure to contribute to local efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, while at the same time contributing to the national and international research effort to find a vaccine.

As an organization, Universities Canada continues to work closely with government to communicate the impacts of the pandemic on the Canadian university sector. Universities Canada has transitioned to a work-from-home protocol and continues to provide critical and timely support to our clients and members remotely.
