UPDATE: Information on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

March 13, 2020

The University of Toronto has been closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). In consultation with public health authorities across the province, we have cancelled our March Break programming (originally scheduled for March 1621) to limit discretionary person-to-person contact during this critical period. To learn more, we encourage you to read the University’s Provostial advisory here.

Please be assured that we share your disappointment in the cancellation of our programs. This decision was made to safeguard the health of our students, staff, and faculty, as well as our neighbours in the community at large, and all of our guests. Credit towards future programming will be issued to any March Break registrants. Alternatively, refunds will be offered (minus the processing fee) if requested. We will be updating participants and their support people with the latest information regarding our programs by email, as well as updating the Engineering Outreach website.

We are grateful for your understanding — and we look forward to hosting you on campus as soon as we can!
