Concordia University Parents Association
Parents' newsletter

Dear parent,


I am pleased to share with you the second Concordia University Parents Association newsletter. I hope you will find it helpful and thought provoking. 


December is fast approaching, and while you are probably busy planning festivities, your student is also busy preparing for exams. Now is a great time to offer support.


In addition to providing links to a number of relevant stories and resources, this issue includes an article and podcast interview on how best to guide and support students through this demanding time.


To keep connected, we have created a Concordia Parent’s Association Facebook group. Please join us here to connect with other parents, share resources and join the conversation.


Should you have any comments or questions about the Concordia University Parents Association, please feel free to email


I wish you and your family a happy and safe holiday season!
