Since November 17, British Columbia has been under a provincial state of emergency due to the devastating floods and mudslides that are destroying communities and infrastructure. The overwhelming loss the people of BC are experiencing impacts our students, staff and families right here in the Waterloo region community.

Our hearts and minds are with the citizens of BC who are evacuating and leaving their homes behind; the government officials who are trying to manage emergency and support services; and all the first responders and volunteers who are helping during this time of crisis.
