As many of you are aware, Laurentian (University) commenced a proceeding under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA) that will allow the university to financially and operationally restructure while continuing to operate in all respects.

As you can imagine this has created considerable turbulence and uncertainty in the university community.

Harquail Earth Sciences and Mineral Exploration Research Centre are committed to maintaining our positions as global leaders in geoscience education, research, and exploration focused on Precambrian ore systems.

Our core activities are continuing, including teaching and learning, research, student recruitment, publishing, conference participation, and planning for summer research.

We will continue to operate and renew our modular courses to become increasingly relevant to our industry partners and develop collaborative research projects to train and educate the world’s future geoscience leaders.

Despite the challenges, we will emerge from the other end stronger, more focused, and more relevant.

As we go through this restructuring we will be as open and transparent about the process as we can be. If you have concerns or wish to discuss please feel free to reach out.
