Info about Assistance available for Students Affected by City Strike
Friday, February 17, 20062 Comments
Obviously, this strike will have a widespread impact on our community.
Due to the strike, many City services are closed down. This means that many other city workers, including several students, who are not represented by the striking locals, are currently unable to work.
Students who are facing severe financial implications are encouraged to contact the University of Guelph’s Student Financial Services by email at or by phone at 519-824-4120 x58715 for emergency financial assistance.
The CSA Food Bank, located on the second floor of the University Centre can be contacted by email at or by phone at 519-824-4120 x58049. The food bank is open 12 – 5 Mon – Fri.
