The University of Guelph-Humber said on Friday evening that university courses would resume on Monday, with college classes to follow later in the week dependent on provincial legislators. 

In an email to students, Vice Provost John Walsh said that the administration “expects the remaining [GH] courses to resume the week of Nov 20 [to] 24.

“Information about changes to the academic calendar, assignments, and exams will be forthcoming,” the email reads.

Walsh thanked thanks for their “patience and perseverance” during the five week college union strike.

Walsh wrote that “we are excited to work with you over the coming weeks to ensure the successful completion of your semester.”

The strike kicked off over a month ago on Oct 16 after the colleges and the union representing faculty, librarians and counselors could not reach an agreement before a planned deadline.

The University of Guelph-Humber shut down campus with the strike as it said it could not offer all of its programs in full due to Humber College faculty teaching some courses.
