Dear students,

Today, Senate, the governing body of the University, approved changes to the academic schedule resulting from the ongoing UMFA strike. Because the length of the strike will determine the extent of changes required, four scenarios with detailed plans were presented and approved.

All approved plans can be found at, and include potential adjustments to the Voluntary Withdrawal date, exam period, the end of Fall Term and start of Winter Term. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the revised schedules at this time. As you will see, we are now at a point where the strike will impact this academic year, and the longer the strike continues, the greater that impact will be.

We understand this is a challenging situation for many of you. Please know we continue to listen to your concerns, and that across the campus, members of our community are working diligently to ensure you have every opportunity to complete a successful academic year.

As always, we encourage you to continue checking for important updates to the FAQs, the official list of continuing classes, and other important information. If you have any questions not answered there, you can always contact us through the site or by emailing strikeinfo [at] umanitoba [dot] ca.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding.

Susan Gottheil
