Although highly unlikely, the possibility of a violent incident occurring at a Canadian post-secondary institution has become a reality in today’s society. Accordingly, the College has developed and implemented a Lockdown Procedure to provide general direction to the College community during an incident in which a lockdown might occur. This Procedure is a resource tool which provides general principles and guidance to members of the Georgian community and is designed to increase the level of preparedness in an attempt to limit the impact of an occurrence. It is expected that students and staff will read this Procedure so they will know how to respond appropriately should an incident occur.
Georgian College is committed to continually improving access to all College premises, facilities, services and public information with the goal of achieving barrier free accessibility for persons with disabilities studying, visiting and working at the College. This procedure is available in alternate formats, upon request through Human Resources 705-728-1968 ext. 1630.
