Canadian Mennonite University is committed to honouring the health, safety, and well-being of the community as a whole. Our collective health is reliant on shared habits and responsibilities of students, staff, and faculty in this time of COVID-19 and always. As we move into the 2021-22 school year the ongoing health risks of COVID-19 remain highly concerning, even with exemplary vaccination rates in Manitoba. Thus, all CMU students, staff, and faculty are required to be vaccinated for COVID-19 in accordance with the schedule listed below. We make this announcement with recognition that many members of the CMU community already have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

The CMU learning community has been amazing all year in collectively honouring one another's health, safety, and well-being. I'm deeply grateful to all CMU students, staff, and faculty for sharing so much good learning, laughter, care, and generosity in the midst of all that's been awkward and hard.

CMU recently installed new high-quality air purifiers throughout its Shaftesbury campus as its learning community returned to in-person and online hybrid classes for the winter semester.
The university is continually looking for ways to improve conditions on campus that will ensure the well-being of its students, staff, and faculty. This innovative technology from Greentech Environmental Canada adds "an additional layer of protection to the air quality on campus in a way that's financially doable and would encourage confidence to return to campus when we were able to do so," says Julene Sawatzky, Interim Director of Administration.
