Bourassa resigns from USask, investigation shifts focus

The University of Saskatchewan has issued a statement indicating that health professor Carrie Bourassa has resigned from the university. Bourassa was placed on leave last year after a CBC report questioned her claims of Indigenous identity. The university launched an independent investigation that was undertaken by Indigenous law expert Jean Teillet. With Bourassa’s departure, the investigation will now focus on recommendations regarding USask’s policies and processes. “Teillet’s recommendations will be provided to USask in the near future, and these recommendations will be shared publicly,” said USask College of Medicine Dean Dr Preston Smith.
