A message to international students affected by Hurricane Irma

As we see Hurricane Irma sweeping through the Northern Caribbean and causing massive damage in the Caribbean and the USA. York International is expressing deep empathy and compassion to people who are impacted by this natural disaster. We are concerned for our students, alumni, staff and colleagues who are in the path of Hurricane Irma. We also urge that international students from the affected areas stay calm, connect with your families back home, and contact the Embassy or High Commission of your country in Toronto. During this incredibly challenging time, York International is working with the campus community to ensure that immediate assistance and support are available to the students impacted by the current situation.
