On Monday, April 15, Heather DeSantis, Director General of International Affairs at Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada spoke to the students at the Max Bell School of Public Policy. The students appreciated her career advice on getting into the public service, especially her journey from studying Canadian studies to a career in security and foreign policy. She also provided insights on the federal government’s interactions with provincial and international governments, such as the negotiations that occurred to expand the new Safe Third Country Agreement.

Since we last wrote, we have made significant progress in identifying the extent of the remediation work that will be required in Moyse Hall. We can now confirm that the closure will extend through the summer. We are aiming to be able to reopen the spaces in time for the Fall 2024 semester but are not able to confirm yet whether this will be possible.

We have received some good news since we wrote to you last week about the closure of auditorium 2/36 at the Strathcona Anatomy and Dentistry Building. The room had been closed due to a report of multiple missing ceiling tiles and the presence of dust and debris in the room.

The air sample taken in the room shortly after the closure returned a result under the regulatory threshold for asbestos concentration and McGill’s more stringent threshold. Additionally, debris of a ceiling tile found in the room tested negative for asbestos.

On February 5, 2024, Facilities Management and Ancillary Services (FMAS) closed access to auditorium 2/36 at the Strathcona Anatomy and Dentistry Building. The closure is related to a report of multiple missing ceiling tiles and the presence of dust and debris in the room.

FMAS is assessing the work required before we can reopen the classroom. This evaluation was complicated by the need to bring in scaffolding to access the ceiling. We hope to have a clearer picture of the work needed and the timeline to reopen in the coming days and will update you as soon as we do.

As we communicated on January 19 and 25, Moyse Hall and certain connected areas are closed following the discovery of plaster debris that tested positive for asbestos.

The assessment of the repair and cleanup work required was slowed down last week after a visual inspection raised concerns about the structural integrity of the catwalk located above the stage. A structural engineer was brought in and has now confirmed that the structure is sound.
