What is Winterfest?

Winter is an unpredictable season on Burnaby Mountain and the SFU Burnaby community needs to be prepared when travelling to and from campus. What better way to get prepared then to attend an event focused on all-things winter safety!

Students, faculty, and staff are invited to learn from various experts on how to stay safe this upcoming season.

Join us at Winterfest 2022 in Convocation Mall on November 2 from 11am – 2pm and visit with vendors, SFU service departments, and other key members of our Safety and Risk Services team.

Collect ballots to win prizes when you visit the information tables.

Safety is a shared responsibility at SFU, and we all have a role to play.
