How to help
Students, faculty and staff can donate to the Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal through the Canadian Red Cross. Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of supporters, the Government of Canada has already matched $10 million in donations from Canadians in response to the humanitarian crisis.
Individual donations will continue to support those impacted by the crisis in Ukraine.
