Canadore President writes open letter discussing housing for students, recent protest


In an open letter to the community, Canadore President George Burton discusses the college’s housing situation. Burton says that a recent tent set-up at Commerce Court was a “publicity stunt” by a third-party that came about after students turned down accommodations offered by the college. He said that the third party “involved itself in our efforts to find housing for our international students” and “prevented us from interacting directly with those looking for housing, and provided information and advice that was unfounded.” Burton urged any students who are in need of housing to come forward for help. Additionally, Canadore will implement a mandatory confirmation of housing as part of the registration process starting in the Winter 2024 semester.
