The death of a student can have a rippling effect on the entire CNC community. As we grieve, please know the College offers a variety of services available to students and employees.

On June 7, 2018, CNC’s wellness coach, RCMP Victim Services and a critical incident counsellor has been on campus in Room 1-723 to offer support services to both students and employees. At 1 p.m., an Employee & Family Assistance Program (EFAP) counsellor will be in Room 1-723 to provide drop-in support services for any CNC employee who needs it.

Ongoing support will be available to employees and students in Room 1-723 on June 8, 2018. That same day the critical incident counsellor will be conducting a debrief session for CNC employees at 3:00 pm in 1-723. If faculty have a scheduling conflict, such as a class, at that time, they may cancel class if they choose in order to attend the debrief session.

Students can contact Dana Hansen, Wellness Coach and Student Services at for more information or to arrange a private appointment.

For employees, Homewood Health is available 24/7 at 1-800-663-1142
