covid-19 update

an update on federal student aid 

To my fellow Mohawk students,

Today Prime Minister JustinTrudeau announced a $9 billion aid program to assist students financially disadvantaged by the COVID-19 pandemic. See the full press release here: bit.ly/COVID-19_April22

It’s encouraging to see the federal government is taking actions to support students. If you’re a returning or graduating student, you can take action too – take a few minutes to fill out this survey for Stats Canada and help inform future decisions that could benefit students: bit.ly/COVID-19-StatsCan

Thank you,
Sheldon Coombs
MSA President

A Message from Your MSA President re: COVID-19

 

To my fellow Mohawk students,

This morning the Ontario government declared a state of emergency for the province, related to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the MSA, we have been encouraging as many employees as possible to work remotely. Some on-site services such as the Career Closet and equipment loans are suspended until further notice, to reinforce the idea to avoid unnecessary contact with people. Grad photos are also suspended, but will be rescheduled at a later date.

You might be sick of hearing the same things:

  • Wash your hands frequently (for 20 seconds or longer each time)

  • Don’t touch your face

  • Avoid travel

  • Distance yourselves socially

You keep seeing these messages everywhere because they work. A lot of us have a friend or loved one with a compromised immune system, or are in a circumstance that otherwise puts them at risk. If you are not worried for your own health, please remember that this outbreak looks a lot different for different people. Out of respect for your own health and those around you, please follow best practices as outlined by Health Canada. Do your part to help Canada ‘flatten the curve’

Even if you’re not at any of our campuses, the MSA is still here to support you. We will communicate the best information we have available in a rapidly evolving situation. Your health and dental plan is still in effect, and all legal counselling services that can be done remotely will continue to be available.

If you’re not aware, 24/7 mental health and wellness supports are available to all students through Empower Me. If you think this might benefit you, call 1-844-741-6389 or visit www.mohawkstudents.ca/empower-me

We want to hear from you to better inform our advocacy efforts - reach out to us by phone, via social media or email, included below.  In an ever-changing situation, I know one thing will stay the same – the MSA will continue to serve Mohawk students to the best of our abilities.

Thank you,

Sheldon Coombs
President
Mohawk Students’ Association
