Post-Secondary Students - UPDATE from Sault College

Good morning,

 As we enter into the third week of the strike of our counsellors, full-time and partial load faculty, I want to reach out to you to let you know that we appreciate and understand how difficult this situation is.  While it has likely created some frustrations and angst for you, your ongoing patience and understanding has been exceptional. 

 I cannot give you a definitive timeline as to when the strike will end, but what I can do is remind each of you that your education is our top priority. Know that contingency and a return to study plan is currently being developed. While we do not have specific details to communicate at this time, please remember that no Ontario student has ever lost their year due to a strike.

 While classes are suspended, we encourage you to keep up with your studies as much as possible. Take advantage of the campus events, peer tutoring, and group study sessions as these are all supports available to you to help assist you through this strike.

 We are committed to keeping you updated every step of the way, and as such, we continue to update our website with frequently asked questions, as well as information on group study sessions, events and open labs. I encourage you to access this information frequently to stay informed and updated on the labour situation. If you have a question or concern that is not addressed, please email .

Again, I thank you for your ongoing patience.
