Laurentian University is in critical condition and its demise threatens the economic, cultural, and social life of Sudbury and Northeastern Ontario. The ripple effects could be devastating to the city.Support from the Sudbury community is essential to preserve the programs and jobs at Laurentian that are so important to Sudbury and the north.

We are a group of people working on a fightback campaign called “Save Our Sudbury”. We hope to put community pressure on the university and provincial government to save our city, our region, and our students — by saving the university.
