International Orientation

Each term, we host International Orientation (IO) events and programming to help you get the best possible start to your time in Canada and at Laurier. 

Fall 2021 International Orientation

To welcome international students to Laurier this fall, we were excited to come together with Laurier's president and vice-chancellor, Deborah MacLatchy, as well as other senior leaders, to share messages of encouragement and celebration. 

  • Watch a recording of the President's Welcome for international students.
  • Access the recording using the passcode Welcome2021!

You're also encouraged to participate in Orientation Week (O-Week) from September 6 - 11, hosted by the Students' Union for all first-year students.
