Algonquin College Umbrella Project
The AC Umbrella Project is a student and staff centered project that provides training, workshops, education, awareness, and support services for students who use substances, and those who care for them.
Algonquin College has undertaken a two year project funded by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities’ Mental Health Innovation Fund with the goal of providing resources, information, and support to help students reduce the harms of their alcohol, marijuana, and substance use following a “harm reduction” approach. This project is a collaboration between Algonquin’s Student Support Services, Partnerships and Applied Research, community partners Rideauwood Addiction and Family Services, Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health, and Tungasuvvingat Inuit Centre.
