The Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics not only offers summer courses but cordially welcomes you in September to a full program. Will it be in person or through the internet, no one knows at this time. However, we assure you that you will be able to begin or continue your studies and that the quality of teaching will be equal to the high standards that have made the reputation of your department for over 65 years. Your Department is looking forward to seeing you!
The Assembly of the Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics adopted its Climate Policy by unanimous vote on January 16, 2020. We invite you to read the preambule and follow the link to the complete text.
The Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics at the University of Ottawa conducts research into the physical processes of climate change as well as the natural and societal impacts and responses to it. We acknowledge that human behaviour is the root cause of present-day climate change, and we have developed this policy to be transparent about our own behaviour, and to work toward eliminating its contribution to climate change."
