The University of Guelph-Humber and Humber College released a statement on Tuesday following the Toronto van attack that killed 10 and injured 16 the day before, saying the communities are” shocked and saddened” by the incident. 

“Our thoughts are with them as well as the first responders, witnesses and people who have impacted across Toronto and beyond,” the statement said.

“Amidst the tragedy, those on the scene exhibited great bravery and compassion.”

Flags on all campuses will lowered to half-mast out of respect for the victims and families.

Humber and Guelph-Humber are “committed to supporting all members of our community”, the Humber president’s office said, pointing students who need support to the Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre and staff to an assistance program.
