► Residence Contract changes
Changes to the Residence Contract are posted as needed.
As you may be aware, Canadian parliament recently passed a law that will see the legalization of recreational cannabis as early as October 17, 2018. We want to remind everyone in our residence community that until such time, recreational cannabis/marijuana is still considered an illegal substance and its use in residence is strictly prohibited and subject to sanctions ranging from fines and probation to eviction.
Please note that since the summer contract was published in March, 2018, several changes to Provincial laws and timelines have changed. Given this, section 2.3 in the summer contract is no longer applicable. The current policy on cannabis in residence can be found in section 2.23 in the 2017-18 contract on our website: http://umanitoba.ca/campus/housing/images/2018-19_Contract.pdf
A new cannabis policy for the 2018-19 academic year is being formulated. Residents will receive communication on this prior to the beginning of the Fall term.
