“The Council of Ontario Universities is deeply saddened by the deaths of Ontario university students aboard the Ukraine International Airlines flight that crashed in Iran.

Ontario universities are enriched by students who come from around the world and share their unique perspectives, insights and help build a multicultural student body that prepares students for today’s globalized world. This tragic loss is felt by all members of our university communities.

Our thoughts go out to the families, friends and colleagues of these students.”
