Considering government instructions and the current vaccination campaign, UQAT is preparing for a return of almost all the training and research activities planned for the 2021 fall session to be in person in its campuses and centres as well as for the staff members. These orientations were adopted by the studies committee as well as the board of directors following various consultations with various players in the university community.
Students, including people from abroad, are expected on site at UQAT campuses and centres for the fall session.
The health and safety of members of the university community are always the priority that guides all decisions. Thus, this mainly face-to-face offer will involve adjustments and will be carried out in compliance with the various health measures aimed at preserving the health and safety of all.
In collaboration with the General Student Association of UQAT (AGEUQAT), the Rector, Mr. Vincent Rousson, as well as the management team, invited students to an online meeting on Monday, May 31st. These webinars, organized specifically for current and future students, were an opportunity to present the orientations for the fall 2021 session as well as to answer the various questions and concerns.
Together, let us prepare for the return to our campuses and centres in the fall in a climate of humanity, creativity and audaciousness!
The 2020-2021 Employee Kit brings together all the information relating to the specific situation we are currently experiencing. You will find, among other things, topics such as employee security, terms and conditions related to teleworking and information security. It also presents information on the psychosocial, technical, and pedagogical support offered to teachers. Discussing with your immediate supervisor is important, particularly in the context of teleworking. This person will be able to ensure that you have all the necessary tools to do your job and guide you in the organization for any others needs.
Access to UQAT centres, campuses and service points is possible for all staff members as well as for students by following the sanitary measures in force.
For staff members:
Before entering your workplace, you must contact your immediate supervisor and you must follow the procedure available in the 2020-2021 Employee Kit.
Before entering a UQAT facility, you must follow the procedure available in the 2020-2021 Student Kit. If you want to get together as a team, make sure to reserve a workspace.
For more information or for any special request, it is possible for students to communicate directly with the various environments.
Each day that a person will have to access a UQAT facility, a form on access to the buildings and declaration of state of health must be completed to ensure the health and safety of everyone on the premises. The form is found in the 2020-2021 Studies Kit or in the Fall 2020 Employee Kit available on Symbiose.
For more information or for any special request, it is possible for students to communicate directly with the various departments.

When the Quebec budget was tabled on March 25, 2021, a lump sum of $100 per term for full-time university students was announced by the Quebec Government. The measure aims to recognize the inconveniences suffered by students in the context of the COVID-19 health emergency, during the fall 2020 and winter 2021 terms. The lump sum may therefore, if applicable, reach a maximum of $200.
For more details on the process and eligibility criteria for the lump sum for students, consult the website of the ministry.
Students are invited to complete the lump sum request web form, which will be accessible via the UQAT student portal as of July 2, 2021. Eligible students are encouraged to check their portal regularly to find out the terms of payment of the lump sum.
Payments will be made retroactively by the ministry starting September 15, 2021.
