Live December 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has touched us all. Some have been marked by profound loss. Many more are struggling with stress and hardship, or are concerned for people in their lives who are struggling. This has been challenging for everyone.
The University has since been able to continue to function safely and effectively because of the tireless collective efforts of our entire community, and the thoughtful, measured guidance of the Emergency Operations Centre and the Academic Planning Executive Committee.
We continue to face immediate, serious challenges, with Montreal remaining a red zone. Fall 2021 will still not look like Fall 2019—but, importantly, nor will it look like Fall 2020.

Live 2020

Over the past year, at a time when it has been the most needed, members of the McGill community have been unstintingly generous in their work with the media and the public. Whether it has been to share knowledge about COVID-19, Black Lives Matter, the US elections, or best-practices in distance education, to name just a few subjects, you have come forward in unprecedented numbers. This work is more important now than ever before.
Principal and Vice-Chancellor Suzanne Fortier created the Principal’s Prize for Public Engagement through Media to recognize outstanding achievement among those who share their knowledge with the public and the media.

Message from the Principal

As Principal of our University, my most important role is to protect and uphold the principles that are central to McGill University’s Mission: academic freedom, integrity, responsibility, equity, and inclusiveness. The value of each of these individual principles is evident. At times, however, they may appear to clash with one another. This has been apparent in recent events within Canadian institutions of higher education, which reveal a tension between academic freedom on one hand, and equity and inclusiveness on the other.

Although this past weekend’s Thanksgiving celebrations had to be scaled down, it was nevertheless a welcome occasion for reflection and gratitude.

According to the government, the cases are being transmitted primarily through social activities and private parties.

Message from Fabrice Labeau

Yesterday, Québec’s Minister of Health asked everyone living in Québec to stay home unless going to work or school. At the moment, the coronavirus is primarily being spread through private gatherings and social activities where people are not respecting physical distancing rules and are not wearing masks.
I know all of us have found the last six months stressful, and new restrictions on socializing will be tough. Remember that staff have access to the Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) for free and confidential short-term counselling and referral services. It is always okay to reach out for help.
