Vaping Risks

Health Canada is advising Canadians who use vaping products to monitor themselves for symptoms of pulmonary illness (e.g., cough, shortness of breath, chest pain) and to seek medical attention promptly if they have concerns about their health. Vaping is not without risk, and the potential long-term effects of vaping remain unknown.

Fentanyl and Naloxone kits

If you’re at risk of an opioid overdose, or likely to witness a family member or friend at risk of overdose, you can call to book a confidential appointment for a free naloxone kit.

Specialist referrals

To see a specialist in Canada, you'll need a referral from a doctor or a nurse practitioner first.

Doctors and nurse practitioners at Student Health can provide you with a referral and help you make an appointment with any specialist. Specialist appointments are in the clinic or off campus.
