Statement on tragedy in Saskatchewan

The Humber and Guelph-Humber communities are deeply saddened by the unspeakable tragedy that left 10 people dead and 18 injured in the communities of James Smith Cree Nation and nearby Weldon, Saskatchewan over the weekend.

The pain is especially acute for Indigenous communities, and we offer our deepest sympathy and support to the families of the victims and anyone else affected by the news coming from Saskatchewan.

Undoubtedly, Humber and Guelph-Humber students and employees have been impacted by this tragedy as well. Students in need of mental health counselling can contact the Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre for support. You can also connect with the Centre for Human Rights, Equity and Inclusion.

If you would like to access services outside of Humber and Guelph-Humber, below is a list of mental health services that support Indigenous and Racialized communities:

Staff may also access Employee Assistance Plan services.

Please continue to support one another during this time, and as we begin the academic year together.

Take care,

Dr. Ann Marie Vaughan,
President & CEO, Humber College

Dr. Melanie Spence-Ariemma
Vice-Provost and Chief Academic Officer,
University of Guelph-Humber
