Health and safety protocols at convocation

Planning a safe in-person convocation during a pandemic is complex and requires all of us to continue our vigilance with respect to COVID-19. The health and well-being of SFU’s graduands, students, staff, faculty, guests and the university community is our top priority.

SFU follows health and safety protocols as advised by regional and provincial health authorities. Please note that Provincial Health Orders on Gatherings and Events continue to evolve and as such convocation plans may change. Updates and information will be shared on this page.

Currently, masks are not required in indoor or outdoor public spaces across the province and are a matter of personal choice, unless further public health orders are made. SFU encourages mask use on our campuses, particularly in spaces where people are in close proximity. Please be understanding and compassionate of people’s individual circumstances and choices.
