Bring Your Partner & Family!

Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies welcomes all new and returning grad students and postdocs whose partner or family is joining them on their SFU journey!

This welcome and orientation event is a space for young and old to connect, share experiences, play and make friends.

It is also an opportunity to learn more about community resources, settlement services, Indigenous events, and job search in Canada.

We will have snacks as well as toys and games available for kids of all ages.

This is a free event open to all graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with a partner and/or children. Bring them along and enjoy an evening with fellow grads and postdocs!
