Sugar Shack Cancellation


In lieu of the evolving COVID-19 situation and the policies implemented by the Faculty of Medicine, HGSS has decided to cancel the Sugar Shack event, originally planned for this Saturday, March 14. HGSS will be providing full refunds to everyone registered, who has been contacted by email.

Currently (Mar 12, 2020), we are not cancelling future small-scale activities planned for the upcoming month and onwards, but please be aware that last-minute changes to our events are possible. Furthermore, for events that require payment, we will be mindful of cancellations and will provide refunds.

As the situation is moving very quickly and policy/regulatory changes from McGill and the Quebec/Federal government are being implemented at a fast pace, HGSS wants to ensure that our members are safe.

For any questions, comments, or suggestions, please reach out to us.
