Concordia University Parents Association
Parents Association Newsletter - Spring 2017

Dear parents,


Welcome to the third edition of our Concordia University Parents Association newsletter, designed to keep you up to date.


Montreal is buzzing as we celebrate the city’s 375th anniversary. This vibrant energy felt throughout our two campuses serves as a reminder of the university’s strong ties with the greater Montreal community. Discover how Concordians see our city in the article below.


In addition to connecting you to relevant stories and resources, this issue features a handy link where parents of graduating students can find convocation information. We also offer alumni career services to facilitate your student’s transition to the workplace.


Join our Concordia Parents Association Facebook group to share resources, stories and advice with other parents.


We welcome your questions and comments at


I wish you and your family a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing great things from your student this fall!
