LAURENTIAN.ORG Inc. is an Ontario-based private corporation that was established on January 14, 2021, two weeks prior to Laurentian University’s unprecedented insolvency declaration. The company was inspired by Laurentian University’s many years of poor governance, lack of transparency, and reckless spending.
Our mission is to create and share news and public information about Laurentian University. We also contribute to advocacy efforts and social causes pertaining to the University.
Our shareholders are University alumni, while our volunteers include current and former Laurentian University staff, faculty, and students.
