COVID-19 Resource Page (updated regularly)

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, GSS Executive Committee has compiled some resources that should be useful to our members. This list will be updated regularly.

Please note that, at this time, post-secondary institutions in BC (including SFU) will be permitted to reopen during phase 3 of BC’s Restart Plan (page 14). In other words, so long as enhanced protocols are in place (described on page 10 of this document) and transmission rates remain low or in decline, SFU will be allowed to provide a mix of online and in-class offerings in September.

The Toronto Science Policy Network has also launched a survey looking into the impacts of COVID-19 on graduate students across Canada, including implications related to working from home, health and wellness, teaching, funding, research and course requirements. The deadline for the survey is May 31.

You may also use this form to let us know about any issues you are facing because of SFU’s measures to address the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please note that the Graduate Lounge and GSS offices will remain closed indefinitely and until such time as BC’s Public Health authorities suspend current social distancing measures and SFU resumes in-person classes. All official, professional, or social events at the GSS have been suspended or will be held virtually. All online services will remain available to our members and we will do everything it can to expand our online services. GSS staff and directors will be working remotely and may be contacted during regular business hours by email.
