Health and Wellness

 Protect Yourself and Others. Wear a Mask.

Masks are mandatory in the Student Wellness Centre. We appreciate your assistance in making this a safe place for everyone.

If you require a doctor's note or documentation of illness for academic reasons, complete the Illness Self-Declaration Form.
