Student Health and Safety
Seeing the importance of health and safety to the GBC community, the SAGBC has designed a variety of services to foster an open and inclusive campus environment where everyone feels safe.
We have a long history of standing up for the rights, safety, and health of our students, and the SNAP, SafeWalk, and Community Care Centre programs go a long way in continuing that.
Late night walks around GBC’s downtown campuses can be intimidating. That’s why SAGBC’s Safewalk program is ensuring you don’t have to make those trips alone.
Safewalk is a service that offers free walk accompaniment to anyone within 2km of George Brown’s campus. Our team of student staff is on-site at all three major campuses to ensure students reach their destination safely.
Community Care Centre
The Community Care Centre is a place where students can connect to seek support or peer-to-peer counselling, while accessing necessary resources to help empower them in their academic and social lives.
The Community Care Centre team is chasing perfection, fighting on behalf of equity groups and marginalized communities on issues of social advocacy.
The CCC’s services are available to all, but their programming emphasizes the support of the following equity groups:
- Black students
- First Nations, Inuit, Métis students
- Disabilities students
- International and racialized students
- LGBTQ students
- Women & trans students
So if you encounter racism, sexism or homophobia – or if you have concerns about GBC’s policies on diversity and equity – reach out to the CCC team. We promise to fight for your voice and offer all the support you need.
Student Nutrition Access Program
A nutritious diet is important to leading a healthy and active lifestyle – but it often seems the healthier you eat, the more money you’re spending. We get it. That’s why the Student Nutrition Access Program (SNAP) is helping students strike a balance between affordable and healthy.
SNAP educates students about nutrition, teaching them the basics of preparing meals that meet nutrition guidelines, how to read nutrition labels, nutrition strategies to boost your immune system, and providing information and resources on how to manage stress through diet, nutrition, and a healthy lifestyle.
SNAP food hampers offer nutritious food and meals to students on campus. Students can sign up for monthly hampers which include everything for balanced nutritious meals all month long.
Healthy foods and a nutritious diet can be possible on a student budget, and our SNAP team is always ready to help show you how.
