PART OF THE SOLUTION
When it comes to building back better in health care, Sheridan is #PartOfTheSolution.
Fueling the health care sector
We see health care differently. Through training and applied research we are fueling a pipeline of highly qualified health care professionals to provide interprofessional, culturally competent care. We take a holistic view of the patient, their lifestyle and the multiple factors that influence health and wellness.
We're #SheridanProud to have played a part in the largest vaccination effort in Canadian history
Vaccines were administered as part of Sheridan's COVID-19 CommUNITY vaccine clinic.
Community partners collaborated on the clinic, including Sheridan, the Region of Peel, Indus Community Services, Punjabi Community Health Services, the Latin-American COVID-19 Task Force and the Government of Ontario.
Sheridan staff and volunteers from partnering organizations helped provide non-clinical support onsite.
A true community effort: Sheridan's vaccination clinic ensured no one was left behind.

Beloved mascot - Bruno - provided a warm welcome for individuals entering the clinic.
“Working with partners like Sheridan College, community-serving organizations and the Ontario government helps us create supportive environments for people, with a focus on some of our most vulnerable residents like international students, who have not yet received their first dose to feel confident in doing so.”
- Dr. Lawrence Loh, Medical Officer of Health, Region of Peel Public Health
Stepping up to help our communities during COVID-19

In the face of a challenging economy, we understand that access to wage incentives is of great importance to many employers. Fortunately, there are several funding options available to help offset the cost of hiring Sheridan co-op students who can offer fresh ideas, creative innovation and critical thinking skills to your organization. Sheridan’s Career-Integrated Learning team held three information sessions the week of April 5 about funding supports available to eligible employers who hire talented students from Sheridan’s 50+ co-op programs. Didn't make it to a session? Not to worry. Recordings of each are available. If you need the recording in an accessible format, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
