Redeemer University College joined other post-secondary institutions across Canada in remembering those who lost their lives in the recent crash of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752.

“We are deeply sorry for the loss suffered by so many in this terrible tragedy,” said Dr. David Zietsma, Vice-President of External Relations and Enrolment, as he lead Redeemer students, staff and faculty in a moment of silence and prayer at today’s chapel service. 

The 57 Canadians who lost their lives in the tragedy included many students and scholars from at least 22 universities across Canada. As a member of Universities Canada, Redeemer stands together with post-secondary institutions across the country as they mourn the loss of friends, colleagues and loved ones.
