Supports and resources

What should I do if I have experienced discrimination or harassment in relation to COVID-19?

Every member of the Heartland community has the right to be treated with respect and dignity and to be welcomed and supported on our campus. No person should be targeted in any way or subjected to discrimination resulting from a misplaced perception that they may be a carrier of a communicable disease based on their perceived disability, race, ancestry, place of origin or otherwise. This kind of targeting is discriminatory and a breach of Heartland’s policies.

If you feel you have been targeted based on any of the above factors, you should report this behaviour.

For safety concerns, contact the Heartland administrative team in person or by phone during operating hours (Winnipeg 204-989-8448, and Mississauga 950-542-4977), or call our emergency lines after hours (Winnipeg – 204-232-3876, or 204-999-9160, and Mississauga 647-867-0457).  If you need immediate assistance because you fear for your personal safety, contact 911.

I am concerned about my family and friends currently in affected regions. Where can I go for support?

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, you may be worried about the health and safety of yourself or your family and friends. This is a challenging and uncertain time. It is not uncommon to experience higher levels of stress and feelings of being overwhelmed. If this is your experience, please seek help and support.

Support is available to members of our campus community who are affected by the COVID-19. We encourage students, faculty and staff who need support to speak with administration.
