As part of the restructuring of its operations under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA), I regretfully inform you that Women’s and Men’s Varsity Swimming and Hockey programs will be discontinued, effective April 30, 2021. 

Laurentian University has had a rich history of competition in both sports and I would like to thank the student-athletes and coaches for their commitment and dedication to the University’s success in varsity sports over many years. 

As this decision will allow Laurentian to further align its financial resources, Laurentian University will continue to pursue athletic success in the OUA and U SPORTS. Varsity programs that remain include Women’s and Men’s Basketball, Soccer, Cross Country Running, Indoor Track, Golf, Nordic Skiing, Curling, Rowing and Baseball (men’s). 

The Department of Athletics and the Office of the Associate Vice-President Student Affairs, Registrar and Secretary of Senate have been working with impacted student-athletes and can be contacted by email at  and
