ON institutions face opposition over COVID-19 vaccine mandates

August 31, 2021
Some postsecondary institutions in Ontario that have mandated COVID-19 vaccines are facing opposition from members of their communities. Two students are reportedly preparing to sue Seneca College over its vaccine policy, saying that they will be unable to complete their programs online. They argue that the policy will delay the completion of their programs, which in turn impacts their student loans. A group of protesters also gathered outside Lambton College earlier this month to rally against mandatory COVID-19 vaccines. At the University of Waterloo, 32 members of the community – including faculty, staff, students, and parents – have signed an open letter opposing UWaterloo’s vaccine mandate.
