The Canadian Federation of Students-Ontario, representing 350,000 students across the province is in solidarity with the students, faculty, and staff at Laurentian University. We join with Laurentian University Faculty Association in demanding that insolvency proceedings stop and
the Ontario government immediately secure funding and end these cuts.
We, the students call for the Ontario government to:
- Put a stop to the CCAA processes immediately and fully fund Laurentian University until it is financially stable;
- Stop the proposed program cuts and guarantee that students will be able to complete their programs as planned at Laurentian University and the previously federated universities (Thorneloe University, Huntington University, and the University of Sudbury);
- Ensure that research funding for graduate programs and their faculty members are restored;
- Immediately stop the layoffs to faculty and staff and secure their employment through the proper bargaining processes.
