Join us for Guidance Counsellor Information Day
Every fall, the Liaison Office welcomes guidance counsellors on campus for the annual Guidance Counsellor Information Day. This event is designed for guidance counsellors and other academic advisors who help students with their academic and career paths. It serves as the ideal setting to brief counsellors on what’s new at the University of Ottawa and on any changes to our undergraduate programs or admission procedures. The University will also be hosting information sessions on topics that are relevant to counsellors.
We will be holding this event over two days, namely on October 3 and 11. One day will be dedicated to counsellors working in English-language schools, the other for counsellors working in French-language schools.

The Liaison Office: for students and counsellors
The Liaison Office is in charge of recruiting undergraduate students across Canada, from Francophone, Anglophone and French immersion students. Its liaison officers travel the country to meet with future students in their schools, introduce them to the University of Ottawa, and discuss their plans with them. The Office also hosts several events, such as open houses, and coordinates campus tours.
The Office’s mission also includes assisting guidance counsellors in their work, either by hosting training events, such as Guidance Counsellor Information Day, informing them of changes at the University of Ottawa, or answering their questions.
Feel free to contact the Liaison Office to obtain copies of any of our publications, arrange for a liaison officer to visit your school, or find answers to any of your questions.
