U of T Victoria announces divestment timeline, students end 18-day occupation


The University of Toronto’s Victoria University recently stated that it will divest its endowment portfolio from fossil fuel companies by 2030. The motion was passed by the Board of Regents and aligns with U of T’s divestment timeline. Victoria Board Chair Cynthia Crysler thanked “every member of the board of regents, including the students who serve on the board, for their rigour, hard work and conviction they brought to the process of divestment.” In response, Climate Justice U of T ended their 18-day occupation of the Victoria College building. The activist group stated that it will continue to push for full divestment by 2025.
