Smoke-Free U of G Consultation

Date and Time


University Centre, Room 442


U of G is transitioning to be a smoke-free campus in Spring 2019.  We recognize that this new policy will have an impact on those who smoke on the main campus and we want to hear from you. 

Please join the 1.5h smoke-free consultation session to share your questions, comments and concerns.
