As you’re aware, Laurentian University is filing for court protection under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA) due to financial challenges it is facing as a result of poorly considered and reckless administrative decisions and the erosion of public university funding.
Laurentian University is a public institution, not a private sector corporation.
The federal and provincial levels of government have a responsibility to step up and provide Laurentian with the funding it needs, not just to survive for a few more months, but to secure the public institution’s long-term future.
You can help Laurentian professors, librarians, staff, workers, and students: click here to send a letter demanding the provincial and federal governments intervene to stop the CCAA insolvency proceedings and provide long-term, stable funding to Laurentian University.
Please share this widely with your networks.
