Standing with Fort McMurray

Fahim Rahman - Wed May 04, 2016

Over the past two days, all of Alberta has watched with horror as wildfires have spread into Fort McMurray, displacing tens of thousands of people who may now have little to return home to. Along with the rest of my executive, I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to all those affected, including our peers at Keyano College.

Earlier today, President David Turpin wrote that the University of Alberta is offering whatever assistance it can during this emergency, including making space available at university residences for those displaced by the wildfires.

We are extremely pleased and proud to see the University taking an active role in providing support to the many Albertans, including students, alumni and staff, who have been impacted.
