  • National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

    National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

    September 30, 2021 – (St. Catharines, ON)

    Today, September 30, marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation – a federal holiday established to honour residential school survivors and recognize the Indigenous lives lost across Turtle Island (an Indigenous name used to reference America and/or Canada).

    This day was formerly known as Orange Shirt Day, a day created by Phyllis Webstad of Stswecem’c Xgat’tem First Nation. The orange shirt is a reflection of Phyllis’ own orange shirt that was taken from her as a six-year-old when she attended a residential school; her orange shirt was taken, along with her culture. The orange shirt is meant to be worn to raise awareness about the negative consequences of the residential school systems felt by all Indigenous communities like Phyllis’ and the Stswecem’c Xgat’tem First Nation.

    As Indigenous communities across these lands continue to combat the ongoing legacies of colonization, the GSA believes that it is the responsibility of settlers to learn about the history of residential schools, the 60s scoop, missing and murdered indigenous women and girls (MMIWG), as well as ongoing land reclamation and sovereignty efforts.

    We encourage you to take meaningful steps with us towards ending the legacies of colonization; to take actionable steps forward toward reconciliation. Here are some steps that we would encourage you to take with us:

    • Take time to learn about the histories of Indigenous peoples in Canada and reflect on actions taken by Canada towards these communities.
    • Create space for Indigenous people to speak, to share their perspectives and their voices.
    • Find ways to spread awareness by sharing resources and educating your friends, families, and communities.
    • Learn how to properly acknowledge the land that you reside on and engage with tools like Native Land’s Interactive Map to learn about traditional territories around you.
    • Read the 94 Call to Action in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Truth and Reconciliation Report and identify what role you can play in the work left to be done.
    • Support Indigenous-owned businesses, artists, experiences, and events.

  • Information for Graduate Students on Returning to Campus

    Information for Graduate Students on Returning to Campus

    In the last month, there have been many updates on the return to campus for the Fall 2021 semester. As of yesterday, September 1, Brock is proceeding with the Fall Term as planned, following the direction from the government about fall-term delivery for Ontario post-secondary institutions.

    To consolidate the information that has been posted about the return to campus and hopefully help you prepare for the Fall semester, here is information that has been shared by Brock:

    Vaccine Mandate

    Brock’s vaccination requirement comes into effect this upcoming Tuesday, September 7. When in effect, only those who are vaccinated or who meet limited criteria for accommodation will be permitted on both the St. Catharines and Hamilton campuses.

    Coming to Campus

    To come onto campus, students, staff and faculty need to fill out the vaccination declaration form here – this should be completed so as soon as possible as it is a mandatory requirement of the university. Those who have not submitted their vaccination information by Sept. 7 will not be permitted on campus until they do so.

    Those who have accommodation exemptions will be required to complete twice weekly rapid antigen testing and enhanced screening upon arrival to campus.

    Ensuring Safety on Campus

    As shared in an email to all students yesterday, Brock has steps to ensure your safety on campus, including the list below:

    GSA Offices

    Mirroring similar processes of BUSU (the Brock University Students’ Union), we will continue to operate through a vastly virtual office model for Fall 2021. We do not have the capacity to currently take walk-in appointments.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please first direct these to our office at gsaoffice@brocku.ca or phone (905) 688-5550, ext. 4094. If staff determine that an in-person appointment is required, individuals will have to follow processes found here.

  • Brock COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate and Returning to Campus

    Brock COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate and Returning to Campus

    August 13, 2021 – (St. Catharines, ON)

    Over the past few weeks, and particularly the last few days, graduate students have been sharing their concerns and thoughts around the university’s plan to return to campus for Fall 2021. The perspectives have been both plenty and varying; we thank all of you for taking the time to share with us. Your voices, as always, have helped shape our decisions, our plans, and our advocacy-based efforts.

    Our executive team has been involved in numerous conversations throughout the summer, many of which are still ongoing, with members across the university and broader contexts about vaccine mandates and the impacts, both positive and negative, on our members.

    Yesterday, the university shared news that Brock will now require COVID-19 vaccination for students, staff, faculty to access campus. In their announcement, some of the details include the following:

    • A first dose, at minimum, of a Health Canada-approved vaccine required by September 7
    • A second dose required by October 15
    • Anyone who cannot be vaccinated, based on medical or other grounds recognized by the Ontario Human Rights Code, can request an accommodation
    • Those fully vaccinated with a vaccine on the World Health Organization Emergency Use Listing are deemed to have met this requirement
    • All members of the Brock community returning to campus will be required to attest to their COVID-19 vaccination status and be prepared to show proof of vaccination to the university

    We appreciate that the university, as noted in their announcement, holds the health and well-being of the Brock community as top priority.

    Standing alongside the Brock University Students’ Union (BUSU), we request that the university further considers validating all vaccines that may not fall under current Health Canada or WHO approval, ensures the greatest privacy and security for sensitive health-related information, maintain open communication about the status of vaccinations and safety protocols, and above all else, continue to prioritize the wellness and safety of all students.

    We also recognize that this issue, vaccinations and mandates, is immensely complex. It is because of such complexity that we are seeking further consultation from you, our members. We want to do the best we can in representing and advocating for graduate students. From conversations, feedback, and additional research, we are aware that there may be students who are unfavourably affected by this new mandate. Your concerns deserve to be heard and considered. We are prepared to advocate for your appropriate accommodations.

    To help us take further steps that reflect the needs of all our members, we ask for your feedback. Please fill this short, anonymous survey by 4PM on Friday, August 20: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8Y3DTRD

    All verified participants of this survey will have the opportunity to win one of four $25 e-gift cards of your choice (some restrictions may apply).

  • New Compliment of Full-Time Staffers Marks Completion of GSA’s Second Phase of Organizational Restructuring

    New Compliment of Full-Time Staffers Marks Completion of GSA’s Second Phase of Organizational Restructuring

     August 6, 2021 – (St. Catharines, ON)

    Two years ago, the GSA began the process of redesigning its organizational structure, recognizing an ever-increasing demand for services and workload on both staff and executive members.

    Earlier this year, we launched a restructured executive team, whose roles were better aligned with the organization’s Strategic Plan and future vision. To compliment this restructuring was a staged approach to staff turnover and succession planning, recognizing the high demands on the former position of Office Coordinator. With a continually growing graduate student population, the demands on this position, and consequently the holder of the position, were subsequently unbalanced. Thus the Office Coordinator position was divided into two new, full-time staff roles: Executive Director (ED) and an Office and Health Plan Administrator.

    “Since our formal beginnings in 2001, the GSA membership has continued to grow and has roughly doubled in the last ten years”, says GSA President, Chris Yendt. “This growth has necessitated new service, advocacy and supports for our members to make the most of their time at Brock.  For years, we have made the most of these limited resources and leveraged partnerships where we could, but as we looked ahead to future retirements, it became clear that the former structure of a single office staff person was no longer enough to support the future direction of the GSA”.

    Reflecting on the work of former Office Coordinator and Executive Director, Barb Daly, and on the position itself, Yendt says that “Executive Directors are the staffing backbones of non-profit organizations. In many ways, Executive Director was the role that Barb had been performing but without the title. In this way, it was logical for the first phase of this restructure to transition the former Officer Coordinator role into two positions, allowing for a year-long onboarding and training process of the new Office and Health Plan Administrator position.”

    Mary Tibollo officially succeeded Barb Daly as Executive Director on July 26th, 2021. Mary’s former role of Office and Health Plan Administrator will be filled by Jennifer Meuser, who begins next week. By using a phased approach to organizational succession, the GSA has ensured continuity and retained corporate memory; we are adjusting our course and preparing for the next decade of growth in our organization.

    As shared in the 2020-2021 Annual Report, growing our staff compliment to two full-time employees (FTE) positions the GSA for expansion and allow for better communication year over year. This enables us to build upon on our successes more effectively, allows for easier and cleaner organizational growth, and aligns us with our strategic priority of commitment to service, as well as reflects our leadership and overall commitment to our graduate community.

    Today, we acknowledge both long-standing service and new team members. We welcome Mary Tibollo, outgoing Office and Health Plan Administrator, into the role of Executive Director and Jennifer Meuser as our new Office and Health Plan Administrator.

    “The completion of these hires rounds out an immense period of transition and change for the GSA,” shares Yendt. “As we prepare to action our first strategic plan, the growth has been remarkable but intentional, planned and measured and the GSA is ready to meet the challenges of tomorrow. As the GSA and our members welcome this new compliment of full-time staff, I think it is critical to reflect and recognize the work that Barb Daly has done for the GSA. I’ve been fortunate enough to know Barb since 2013 and have we have worked closely together since I joined the GSA in 2015. Her dedication to graduate students has been immeasurable and has underpinned each success the GSA has had over more than a decade. Each executive team owes much of their accomplishments to Barb’s support, knowledge, and university relationships. Our restructuring is no exception. While Barb’s trusted face and voice will not be forgotten at Brock, we wish her all the best in a well-deserved retirement. Last year, the GSA formally inducted Barb as our first honorary member and given both her passion for volunteering and dedication to graduate students, I look forward to the inevitable day that our paths cross again.”

    With the fall semester now under a month away, Mary and Jennifer are back in the GSA Offices, in full-time capacities. Both Mary and Jennifer are available to support graduate students by appointment only at this time; no walk-ins can be taken. To book an appointment, email gsaoffice@brocku.ca or visit our website to book through our online form.

    For questions about health and dental plan coverage, volunteer opportunities with GSA or general inquires about the GSA contact Jennifer at gsaoffice@brocku.ca.

    For questions regarding finances, operations, strategic directions, or governance related inquires, contact Mary at gsaed@brocku.ca.

  • Special Statement on Pride Month

    July 6, 2021 – (St. Catharines, ON)

    Special Statement on Pride Month

    June in Canada holds spaces for two month-long celebrations: Pride Month and National Indigenous History Month. And though it is not June anymore, that does not mean that the recognition of Pride and Indigenous History ends there.

    During June, we turned our focus to our Indigenous neighbours as waves of grief hit harder and harder with each residential school mass grave found. In the belief that honest Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ acceptance can’t be attained until we safeguard the most vulnerable among the wider population, we feel that offering our spaces to learn, educate and share about Indigenous communities was done alongside the spirit of Pride.

    Though the ratio of our online attention was vastly in favour of Indigenous history, we don’t want to diminish the importance of holding space for Pride and those who identify with the Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ community.

    Pride celebrations were born in commorancy of the 1969 Stonewall riots, a pinnacle movement towards achieving equal justice and opportunity; the riots marked a beginning of outlawing discriminatory laws and practices against Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ folks. Though Stonewall happened in New York, its power and rioters were heard globally.

    In Canada, our Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ movement didn’t quite start with Stonewall. Just over a month prior to Stonewall, homosexual acts between consenting adults were decriminalized; this follows the passage of the Criminal Law Amendment Act which was introduced in late 1968. The Act, along with the outrage post-Stonewall, put advocate’s wheels in motion. While the first Gay Liberation Protest and March happened in 1971 and Canada’s first Pride Week took place in 1973 in cities across the country, it wasn’t until the Brunswick four and the mass media attention their trials drew in 1974 that the Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ movement in Canada began to grow.

    Over half a century later and there is still much work to do as a nation to better support Two-Spirit and LGBTQ+ folks.

    As an association, we recognize that we need and can do more. We recognize the validity, the necessity and the societal value that comes with Pride Month. We recognize that education, support and allyship doesn’t only happen in June; that it is an ongoing relation.

    Pride is about creating visibility in the journey to equality, and we aim to continue this year-round.

  • Special Statement on Canada Day and Support

    June 30, 2021 – (St. Catharines, ON)

    Special Statement on Canada Day and Support

    Tomorrow, the GSA will be redirecting our attentions to acknowledging the needed supports of Indigenous communities; needed supports for the traumatic actions of residential schools, for missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, for over 150 years of stolen lands, for many more injustices.

    There are many ways that those who are settlers can show solidarity with our Indigenous neighbours.

    As an organization, we recognize that there is much more that we can be doing for both our members who are Indigenous, but also for Indigenous communities around us. We acknowledge that we need to take more meaningful actions; to take actions that aren’t solely performative. We are determined to do more.

    We commit to continually learning more and sharing resources along the way so that you can learn more with us. Tomorrow, we hope that you join us in lifting voices of Indigenous folks, celebrating Indigenous art and artists, reinvesting funds that you would have used towards Canada Day celebrations to Indigenous charities and organizations in your communities or across the country, and taking time to learn more about Turtle Island and the first caretakers of its lands.

    One step that we urge everyone to take along with us – be it tomorrow or any other day – is reading the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action. While many of the 94 Calls to Action have a demand of government resources or personnel, there are many ways in which we can enact some of these actions in our own lives. Have a read and see what you can introduce into your lives or start to act on now!

    Below, you will find a complied list of resources to better support Indigenous communities. We encourage you to find ways to spread awareness by sharing these resources, by educating your friends, families, and communities.
