Possible COVID grade funding impacts
Withdrawls
Funding agencies require a minimum number of credit hours for funding. Students must maintain continuous registration in the minimum credit hours to keep receiving that money. If, by withdrawing from a class, you drop below the minimum credit hours, your funding could be impacted.

Impact of CRC or NCC on Undergraduate awards
For the most part, the CRC and NCC grades will not affect your eligibility for undergraduate student awards. Your award average will be calculated using only numerical grades.

Exceptions: Some awards are given to the student with the highest mark in a course. Those with a CRC or NCC will not be considered. Some other awards are given based on TGPA (term GPA). If you have classes that do not have a numerical grade, you will not be considered for these awards.
Stats Canada wants to hear from you!
Statistics Canada wants to hear about how COVID-19 is impacting post-secondary students. You can provide your perspective on the current crisis and help shape the creation and ongoing operation of organizations and initiatives to help students.

Please take five minutes to participate and feel free to forward this email to other post-secondary students — the more people that participate, the better the data!

To find out more and to complete the questionnaire, visit www.statcan.gc.ca/COVID-students.

This survey is conducted under the authority of the Statistics Act, which ensures that the information you provide will be kept confidential, and used only for statistical and research purposes.
Info for International Students
The Government of Canada will remove the restriction that allows international students to work only a maximum of 20 hours per week while classes are in session, provided they are working in an essential service or function, such as health care, critical infrastructure, or the supply of food or other critical goods.

International students and their employers should consult Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada's Guidance on Essential Services and Functions in Canada during the COVID-19 Outbreak to determine if the work the student is doing would allow them to work more than 20 hours per week during the academic session. This temporary rule change will be in place until August 31, 2020.
Canada Student Service Grant
While the COVID-19 pandemic will limit employment opportunities for students, it presents an opportunity for students and youth to mobilize and take part in national service activities that can provide valuable labour market and skills development experiences, while giving back to their local communities.

To encourage students to participate in the COVID-19 response, the government will launch a new national service initiative to recognize students' significant contributions to the COVID-19 efforts, and provide support through a new Canada Student Service Grant which will provide up to $5,000 to support student's post-secondary education costs in the fall.

More details will be made available on the I Want to Help platform over the coming weeks, including more detailed information about eligibility, the levels of funding available under the grant, how to apply for a national service position, and how applications will be assessed.
Plans for reopening Saskatchewan
Premier Scott Moe and Saskatchewan's Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Saqib Shahab announced the Re-Open Saskatchewan plan. It consists of five phases. The timing and order of the businesses and workplaces included in each phase is subject to change throughout the process based on a continuous assessment of transmission patterns and other factors.
