As the Israel-Hamas conflict continues, we grieve for the many lives lost and our thoughts are with students, faculty and staff with ties to the region. We are also deeply concerned by a rise in anti-Semitic and Islamophobic sentiment across Canada, including at post-secondary institutions.  

JIBC is committed to its vision of safer communities and a more just society. We will not tolerate racism, hate or incitements to violence of any kind. We will always act to ensure that our campus is a safe learning environment for all, and to promote peaceful dialogue and respect for diverse opinions. 

We understand that events like these impact all of us differently and encourage you to demonstrate kindness and compassion for one another. If you need support, the following resources are available to you:
