0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!


The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has ravaged countries across the globe, killing thousands of people. Ontario has gone from announcing one or two cases per day to announcing 17 today.

The NHL, NBA, MLS, NLL, and other leagues and sporting events, have been suspended or cancelled. All travel between the United States and Europe is banned.

Other Ontario universities and colleges have suspended their semester or moved all classes online. Major American universities (Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Columbia, etc.) have cancelled their classes.

Humber College must do the same, to protect their students, faculty and other employees, and visitors.

Two students (sisters) in the Recreation and Leisure Services program at Humber, tested POSITIVE for the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Their family members said they are currently in the hospital. It is not known how long they were on the North Campus before being hospitalized.

We, the undersigned, students, faculty and other employees, and alumni of Humber College and concerned community members, ask the school to:

Cancel all classes + other school events and close all three campuses for twenty-one (21) days (three weeks) and close all three campuses; and postpone final examinations by 21 days (three weeks);

OR

Cancel all classes + other school events and close all three campuses for seven (7) days (one week) ; and move all classes online; and extend assignment deadlines and postpone examinations by 14 days (two weeks);
