Statement Regarding Last Night's Orientation Event

The Student Orientation Committee (SOC) would like to extend a formal apology to all attendees of the performance that took place on Sunday, September 3rd.

In planning Orientation Week, the committee’s primary objective is to provide a variety of events that reflect the diverse interests of all incoming students. Last night’s performance was intended to be of a unique and entertaining nature, however despite specific direction being given to the performers, the content of the show was not acceptable and accordingly the show was halted.

As we continuously encourage our students to take a stance on anything that makes them uncomfortable, we believe we had an obligation to end the event early. We would like to thank both Safety and Security and the Orientation Committee in assisting in the safe shut down of this performance.

Any individuals who may have been Impacted by this  event are encouraged to reach out to Health and Counselling at 902-867-2263or Aspiria at 1-877-234-5327. We also encourage any individuals who have feedback, comments or questions regarding this or any other event held during Orientation Week to contact the Students’ Union VP Activities & Events at

We look forward to the rest of the week and tonight's event, PlayFair!
