Senate Agenda - EXHIBIT III - June 21, 2001
Recommended: That an interdisciplinary graduate program in Biomedical Engineering leading to the degrees of MESc and PhD be introduced by the Faculty of Graduate Studies, contingent on approval by the Ontario Council on Graduate Studies on June 22, 2001.
The proposed program is an interdisciplinary graduate level offering. The core faculty participating in the program will come primarily from the Faculties of Medicine & Dentistry and Engineering Science, with some participation from Health Sciences. Many of these faculty will have joint appointments between the Faculties and their workloads will include a component dedicated to the Biomedical Engineering program, if approved. The program would operate independent of any single Faculty or Department, and would report directly to the Faculty of Graduate Studies according to a model used by the highly successful interdisciplinary programs in Theory & Criticism and Neuroscience.
To be eligible for admission into the MESc program applicants must possess a four year honors degree, or equivalent, usually in Engineering Science. Honors graduates from other disciplines (e.g., Physics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Physiology, Medical Biophysics, Mathematics) may also be admitted but would be required to take additional courses to accommodate engineering deficits. To be eligible for admission into the PhD program, applicants must normally possess a masters degree in Biomedical Engineering; applicants with a masters degree in another engineering area may also be admitted, but would have to take additional Biomedical Engineering courses to make up any deficit.
The faculty resources available to the program are fifteen faculty currently appointed to academic positions in the Faculties of Medicine & Dentistry and Engineering Science, many of whom also hold appointments in the Robarts Research Institute. In addition, a further faculty member will be hired into an SFRI funded position held jointly between Engineering and the Faculty of Health Sciences, and three additional faculty will be hired into positions funded by the Whitaker Foundation for three years. One of these Whitaker funded positions will be in the Faculty of Engineering Science, and the other two will be joint positions held in the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry and the Faculty of Engineering Science. At the end of the three year Whitaker Funding period, these positions will be funded by the home Faculties.
The anticipated enrolment in the program would be a minimum of eight new MESc or PhD students each year, leading to an enrolment of approximately 20 at the end of year three and an eventual steady state enrolment of approximately 60 students.
Degree requirements consist of mandatory and optional graduate courses and a supervised research project leading to a thesis. In the MESc program students would take six half courses, a seminar course and present a thesis. In the PhD program they would take a further four half courses, a seminar course and present a thesis.
Recommended: That the Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy [BSc(PT)] program be withdrawn from offerings in the Faculty of Health Sciences, effective September 1, 2003; and,
That a Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) program be introduced in the Faculty of Graduate Studies with first admissions occurring in September 2002.
The School of Physical Therapy has recently received OCGS approval for the implementation of a new graduate program in Physical Therapy (MPT). The withdrawal of successive years of the undergraduate program will occur in coordination with the introduction of the new MPT curriculum by the Faculty of Graduate Studies that will accept its first students in September 2002.
The School of Physical Therapy previously received approval for a slip year during which no new students will be admitted into Physical Therapy in September 2001. The current courses will be withdrawn in temporal sequence as outlined below in order to allow students already enrolled in the BSc(PT) program to complete academic requirements and graduate in 2003. There are no part-time students currently in the program that will be affected by the withdrawal of these courses.
The Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) program is an initiative of the School of Physical Therapy. It is a two-year, six-term professional program that will provide a post-baccalaureate, graduate level qualification at the masters level for those wishing to seek accreditation as practicing Physical Therapists. It will replace the current three-year, six-term BSc(PT). This reflects a view in the discipline that Physical Therapists now need to acquire the skills to be independent, self-directed practitioners capable of assessing and applying the outcomes of research. This is a trend in the applied health science disciplines. In 1998, Western's School of Occupational Therapy was the first in Canada to replace its BSc(OT) program with a professional masters program; subsequently, both Toronto and McMaster have also done so, and at the same time have replaced their bachelor's level Physical Therapy programs with offerings at the masters level.
To be eligible for admission into the MPT program, students must possess a four-year undergraduate degree which includes senior undergraduate courses and completion of requisite courses in English, Biology, Human Physiology, Statistics, Liberal Arts, and Social Science.
The faculty resources available to the program are the twelve faculty members in the School of Physical Therapy. Ten of these already have membership in the Faculty of Graduate Studies as a result of their participation in the MSc program in Physical Therapy. No additional faculty resources are required to offer the proposed MPT program since it replaces the current BSc(PT) program.
The anticipated enrolment in the program will be 44 in each year of the two-year, six-term program, compared with 64 in the current three-year, six-term undergraduate program.
Degree requirements consist of mandatory graduate courses along with clinical and research experiences.
The program proposal was developed in consultation with the Faculty of Graduate Studies to ensure that it contains the elements necessary for an offering at the graduate level (i.e., a program of study that allows a student to acquire research, investigative and analytical skills). The proposal was approved by the Ontario Council on Graduate Studies at its meeting on May 25, 2001.
Recommended: That a Four-Year Bachelor of Science in Honors Biology and Geology be introduced in the Faculty of Science, effective September 1, 2002.
FOUR-YEAR BSc HONORS BIOLOGY AND GEOLOGY
The program is designed to provide the student with a basic background in both Biology and Earth Sciences. This program is advantageous for those interested in Biology, Evolution, Earth History and Palaeontology.
The program in first year must include Biology 022 or 023 and Earth Sciences 020 or equivalent, both with a mark of at least 60%; Chemistry 020 or 023; Mathematics 030 or any two of the following: Calculus 050a/b, 051a/b, 081a/b, Mathematics 028a/b, Linear Algebra 040a/b, Statistical Sciences 024a/b; or the former Applied Mathematics 020, or 023a/b plus 024a/b, or the former Mathematics 027. At least one course from the Faculty of Arts or Social Science must be included.
Note: Courses equivalent to Earth Sciences 020 are any two of Earth Sciences 081a/b, 082a/b, 038F, 085a/b, 281b; the recommended combination most closely approximating the content of Earth Sciences 020 is Earth Sciences 082a/b and 085a/b.
Biology 240b, 280a, 281b, 283a, 290a/b
One of : Biology 244a, Statistical Sciences 135, 222a/b, 241a/b or Psychology 281
Earth Sciences 206b, 260a/b, 261a/b
One half-course equivalent option to attain a total of five courses.
Biology 271a, 282b, 284a
Earth Sciences 200a, 300b, 314b, 361a/b
One senior Science full-course equivalent option, to attain a total of five courses. Recommended options include Earth Sciences 240a/b*, 250y*, 340a*, and 341a/b* and Biology 216b, 328a, and 359b.
*Note: By the end of fourth year students must complete at least 6.0 Honors level courses in Earth Sciences.
Zoology 423F/G, 441a
Earth Sciences 400a/b, 461a/b, 462a/b
Zoology 450a/b plus 451b or Plant Sciences 450a plus 451b or Earth Sciences 490
One senior Science full-course equivalent options numbered 200 or above, to attain a total of five courses. Recommended options include Earth Sciences 460a/b*, Biology 366b, and Plant Sciences 490a.
Over the past 10 years the interdisciplinary nature of the Earth Sciences has broadened to include a significant component of the Biological Sciences. Interactions among the Earth's lithosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere have become an important frontier of study. Recently, Biology and Earth Science students have approached Earth Science faculty and requested the ability to do a joint Biology-Geology degree. Recent meetings among interested Biology (Plant Sciences and Zoology) and Earth Sciences faculty have shown that this interest is shared among a significant number of the faculty in each department. To satisfy the need of both students and faculty the proposed Four-Year BSc Honors Biology and Geology program was created. At present the program's main focus is on Biology, Evolution, Earth History and Paleontology.
4a Combined Honors Program: BA in Honors Computer Science and MIT
Recommended: That a BA program in Honors Computer Science and Media, Information and Technoculture be introduced in the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Science, and the Faculty of Information and Media Studies, effective September 1, 2001.
Four-Year BA Honors Computer Science and MIT
To be considered for admission to the second year of the Combined Honors program in Computer Science and MIT, a student must achieve a minimum overall weighted average of 75.0% in 5.0 full-course equivalents numbered 001-099 (including the principal courses for the program) with no unsatisfactory attempts.
The selection process for admission to second year of the MIT Combined Honors program is based on a student carrying a full course load, including the MIT first-year prerequisites. Eligibility is determined by a student's overall weighted average obtained at the end of the academic year. In cases where the number of applicants exceeds the number of spaces, admission will be competitive. Attainment of the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission.
Third and Fourth Years
To progress to the third and fourth years of the BA in Honors Computer Science and MIT program, a student must achieve a minimum overall weighted average of 72% in MIT courses taken in each academic session, and a 70% average with no individual grade below 60% in the Computer Science and Mathematics principal courses, in each case with no unsatisfactory attempts.
To graduate with a BA in Honors Computer Science and MIT, a student must achieve a minimum overall weighted average of 72% in the MIT courses counted towards the degree, and a minimum average of 70% with no individual grade below 60% in the Computer Science and Mathematics principal courses counted toward the degree, in each case with no unsatisfactory attempts.
The Faculty of Information and Media Studies and the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Science, have witnessed student demand for this combination and believe that such a combination will be useful and challenging for a certain number of interested students who would like to move beyond the confines of the traditional Computer Science academic path.
4b Four-Year BA in Computer Science and MIT
Recommended: That a Four-Year BA program in Computer Science and Media, Information and Technoculture be introduced in the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Science, and the Faculty of Information and Media Studies, effective September 1, 2001.
Four-Year BA in Computer Science and MIT
To be considered for admission to the second year of the Four-Year BA in Computer Science and MIT, a student must achieve a minimum overall weighted average of 70.0% in 5.0 full-course equivalents numbered 001-099.
The selection process for admission to second year of the program is based on a student carrying a full course load, including the MIT first-year prerequisites. Eligibility is determined by a student's overall weighted average obtained at the end of the academic year. In cases where the number of applicants exceeds the number of spaces, admission will be competitive. Attainment of the minimum admission requirements does not guarantee admission.
Third and Fourth Years
To progress to the third and fourth years of the four-year BA program in Computer Science and MIT, a student must achieve a minimum overall weighted average of 68% in the MIT courses taken in each academic session, with no more than 1.0 unsatisfactory attempt in 5.0 full-course equivalents, and a minimum of 60% in the Computer Science and Mathematics courses taken in each academic session.
To graduate with a four-year BA in Computer Science and MIT, a student must
1) achieve a minimum overall weighted average of 68.0% in the MIT courses counted towards the degree;
2) achieve a minimum overall weighted average of 60% in the Computer Science and Mathematics courses counted toward the degree
3) complete all graduation requirements within the first 26.0 courses attempted, including repeated courses;
4) complete at least 13.0 senior level courses at the 100 level or higher, at Western or one of the affiliated colleges.
Students admitted with advanced standing are required to complete at least 10.0 full-course equivalents at Western or one of the affiliated colleges.
The Faculty of Information and Media Studies and the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Science, have witnessed student demand for this combined programs and believe that such a combination will be useful and challenging for a certain number of interested students who would like to move beyond the confines of the traditional Computer Science academic path. The four-year program provides a fall-back choice for students who cannot handle the rigorous demands of the corresponding honors program.
Recommended: That a Bachelor of Arts program in Honors Philosophy, Reasoning, and Ethics be introduced in the Faculty of Arts, Huron University College, effective September 1, 2001.
BA IN HONORS PHILOSOPHY, REASONING, AND ETHICS
A first year with three principal courses including Philosophy 021.
A minimum average of 70% in the three principal courses with no mark less than 60% in any principal course and no failures.
After the first year a total of at least nine Honors Philosophy courses and six options is required. While the program provides a strong philosophical foundation, students in this program will pursue more courses in ethics and reasoning than those students in the Honors Philosophy program. Students may take additional Philosophy courses among their options, but all Honors Philosophy courses taken will be regarded as principal courses.
All of Philosophy 200F/G, 201F/G, 210F/G, 211F/G, 212 must be taken in second year.
Philosophy 282E (may be taken in third or fourth year)
Third and Fourth Year
Philosophy 312E, 362E, and three more Philosophy courses at the 300- or 400-level, at least one of which must be in Moral or Legal Philosophy.
Philosophy programs appeal to students for different reasons. Many students delight purely in the intellectual challenge. Others deliberately seek training in Philosophy seeing it as a good foundation for further study leading to planned careers in business, law, medicine or other professions. The number of students in this category has increased in recent years.
The proposal is an attempt to provide a version of Huron's Honors program which is tailored to the needs of students. It resembles the existing Honors program in Philosophy by requiring all the standard core courses in Epistemology, Ethics, Ancient Philosophy, Early Modern Philosophy and Logic. It requires as many senior courses in Philosophy as the current Honors program. It differs from the present program only in that it is more directive about the choice of some of the optional Philosophy courses, stipulating more study in both Logic and Ethics than is the case in the current program. In one sense this proposed program in Philosophy, Reasoning and Ethics is not necessary: a student could fulfil all its requirements within the constraints of the present Honors program. The Department would, however, like to be more deliberate in its engagement with students who come to it having a professional career in mind. That, ultimately, is the motivation for the design of this proposal. The student's decision to specialize should be recognized, hence the new program and name.
Recommended: That a "Wireless Communications" Option be introduced in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Faculty of Engineering Science, effective September 1, 2001.
REVISED CALENDAR COPY C. Electrical Engineering - Wireless Communications
Add the following -- See page 64 of the current Academic Calendar
C. Electrical Engineering - Wireless Communications Option
Students entering Electrical Engineering - Wireless Communications option - follow the same curriculum for the first three years as other students in the Electrical Engineering program. A student who wishes to enroll in the Wireless Communications option must have completed the third year of the Electrical Engineering Curriculum.
Fourth Year Program
Business Administration 299, ECE 416, 432a/b, 433a/b, 436a/b, 437a/b, 451a/b, 498a/b
One Technical Elective half-course from the approved list. The list is the same as for the Electrical Engineering program, Option A (Electrical Engineering), excluding the above mandatory courses.
One Non-Technical Elective half-course from the approved list. The list is the same as in the Electrical Engineering program.
Introduction of this option will enable the Department to focus its teaching resources and expertise in the rapidly growing area of communications, and to make the Electrical Engineering Program more attractive to prospective students.
Recommended: That, effective August, 1, 2001, the policies on Procedures for Adding and Dropping Courses, Deadline Dates for Adding a Course, Dropping a Course and Recording of Dropped Courses, be replaced by the following comprehensive policy on Adding and Dropping Courses and that any sessional dates affected be revised accordingly by the Office of the Registrar.
ADDING AND DROPPING COURSES
Courses may not normally be added and dropped after the specified deadline dates. In exceptional cases and on presentation of evidence of medical or compassionate grounds or other extenuating circumstances, the Dean (or designate) of the faculty of registration may grant a petition to waive the regulation.
The Office of the Registrar, in consultation with the academic community and appropriate administrative offices, will determine all applicable sessional dates for the academic year and recommend them to Senate for approval in December. The list of sessional dates will be maintained on the Registrar's Office website in the Academic Calendar at http://www.registrar.uwo.ca/ACCALS/
Deadline dates for adding a course will normally be calculated according to the table in Appendix I.
Once classes begin, a course may be added or dropped only with the joint approval of the Dean (or designate) of the Faculty in which the student is registered and the Chair (or designate) of the Department concerned.
A course that has been dropped by the last date specified for adding a course shall be expunged from the records. A course that has been dropped after the last date specified for adding a course but before the last date for dropping a course without academic penalty (or subsequently, if a petition is granted by the Dean) shall be recorded as "WDN".
A course that has not been dropped in accordance with the above regulations and that has not been completed satisfactorily by the student shall be recorded as "F".
Currently there are no add/drop guidelines in the Academic Calendar to accommodate approved Nursing full courses (381,382,391,392,498, 499) that run in the same time frame as half courses (September to December, or January to April). Senate approval was given for these courses without the associated administrative procedures being in place. The problem was identified with the distribution of T2202A forms when students indicated that information was incorrect on their forms. To avoid a piecemeal approach to Add/Drop, a new comprehensive policy is recommended. Under the revised policy, add/drop dates will be formulated by a table specifying for the type of course (full course, first term full course, etc.) and session, the number of days of classes after the commencement of the session that a course may be added or dropped (see Appendix 1).
[Secretarial Note: Senate Policy numbers to be rescinded as a result of this change: Adding and Dropping Courses (S.662.1, S.782, S.1817.3); Deadline Dates for Adding a Course (S. 1303, S. 1324, S.1817.1 and .2, S.2611, S.4014, S.96-32, S.96-84,); Dropping a Course (S.1817.1, S.2539, S. 2611, S.4014, S.96-84); Recording of Dropped Courses (S.1817.4 and .5, including Faculty of Education Exceptions S.4134)]
Recommended: That, effective September 1, 2001, for BScN program graduates in 2002, 2003 and 2004, the current School of Nursing late assignment policy be revised to read as outlined below.
REVISED CALENDAR COPY
All written assignments in a professional practice course are required to be handed in on the due date.
Only under exceptional circumstances will late assignments be accepted for grading, without penalty.
If a student requires an extension, it is the student's responsibility to negotiate an extension with the faculty member prior to the due date.
In the event a student does not hand an assignment in on time or does not negotiate an extension, there will be a five percent (5%) deduction of the assignment's value per calendar day to a maximum of ten calendar days. After this ten day calendar period, the faculty member will not grade the assignment except under unusual circumstances.
An assignment is due on a Friday but not handed in until the following Monday. The assignment is counted as 3 days late. The assignment's value is worth 20% of the final course grade. Fifteen percent (15%) of the value of the assignment will be deducted (3 days late x 5%) because of the late penalty. The assignment is marked and the student would have received 16/20 (80%). Since it was handed in late the student's grade is now 13/20 (65%).
To generate consistency among all years in the undergraduate nursing program, it was decided that one policy be developed to be included in all course packages. The late assignment policy, which currently comprises only the second paragraph of the above, has been applied differentially across courses with great subjectivity in determining what are the 'exceptional circumstances'. In addition, the policy does not state who is responsible for determining students' late assignment status. It is believed that adopting a uniform policy will create greater equity for students.
Recommended: That, effective September 1, 2001, for BScN program graduates in 2002, 2003 and 2004, the current School of Nursing progression policy be revised to read as shown below.
REVISED CALENDAR COPY
1. Students may proceed to the next year of their program if the following conditions are met:
1.1 Satisfactory clinical performance
1.2 Passing grade of at least 65% in each nursing course
1.3 Overall average of at least 60% for each full year of the program
2. A student whose overall average is below 60% may not proceed in the program until the average has been raised to 60% or above.
3. Clinical Course Failures:
3.1 Satisfactory performance in all Domains of Practice(1) must be achieved in order to successfully complete a rotation(2). In the event of a failed rotation, all competencies within the five Domains of Practice must be met satisfactorily by the end of the course in order to progress.
3.2 One failed rotation may be permitted throughout the course. Students who have received an unsatisfactory grade in any but the final rotation, in a course with multiple rotations, may:
3.2.1 be permitted to proceed to the next rotation with a Collaborative Success Plan(3) (CSP)
3.2.2 be required to repeat the course
Students who fail the final rotation in a course with multiple rotations will receive an unsatisfactory course grade and will be required to repeat the course.
3.3 Students who fail a rotation will develop, in conjunction with the faculty, a CSP concerning the ends-in-view which have not been met successfully. If the reason for the CSP is a failed rotation, students will be permitted one CSP in the program.
3.4 If a student fails a clinical course(4) the case will be reviewed, on an individual basis, by the clinical instructor, course/year coordinator and the undergraduate program Chair. The undergraduate program Chair will inform the student in writing of the decision regarding his/her progress and any conditions or requirements pertaining to that decision. In the event that a student fails a clinical course, at the discretion of the undergraduate program Chair, in consultation with the course faculty, the student may be required to repeat the co-requisite theory course.
3.5 When a student is repeating a failed clinical course, no unsatisfactory rotations will be permitted. In all, only one (1) clinical rotation or course failure and one (1) attempt to pass the failed course will be permitted throughout the program.
4. Course Failures
Students are allowed a total of two course failures throughout the program. The failures can be:
4.1 one clinical and one non-clinical course
4.2 two non-clinical courses
Failed courses, excluding electives, must be repeated successfully in order to progress. In the event of a failed elective, students must successfully complete an elective, not necessarily repeat the failed elective.
4.3 When a student is repeating a full year, no course failures of any kind will be allowed.
There is a need to revise the existing policy to include progression criteria related to the Domains of Practice in Nursing and to clearly state progression paths for clinical courses in which there are multiple rotations.
In courses with multiple rotations, while students receive a satisfactory/unsatisfactory (S/US) grade for each rotation, they will have the opportunity over several different clinical rotations to meet course ends-in-view, receiving one S/US grade for the course. As the accrual of knowledge and application of knowledge and theory to practice is progressive, it is necessary to craft a policy which reflects this expectation and the requirement for student growth in each subsequent rotation. This policy views evaluation of each rotation according to this expectation, with a view that students will need to repeat a course if they are unsuccessful in the final rotation of a course with multiple rotations. Clarification regarding students' progression in the course with multiple rotations, has been provided in section 3.2.
A Collaborative Success Plan (CSP) is a learning plan that is developed jointly by faculty and student to promote student success. The CSP will assist in the identification of areas causing difficulty and in the development of goals, requirements and possible options to enable students to be successful and achieve a satisfactory grade. The intent is that students be self-directed in their learning activities. Therefore, a CSP may be initiated for any situation where student success is at risk. This policy delineates criteria and rationale for number of CSPs permitted in the program.
The present calendar copy refers to a School Undergraduate Progressions Committee. Although student progression is reviewed, diligently, by course faculty, the Chair of the undergraduate program, and where necessary, the Director of the School, the School Undergraduate Progressions committee ceased to exist several years ago. In section 3.4, the proposed progression policy accurately reflects the procedure for student progression that currently takes place. Students appeal failures in accordance with University procedures outlined in the academic calendar.
Recommended: That the Grading Rules for the Faculty of Law be revised to read as shown below, effective September 1, 2001.
REVISED CALENDAR COPY
The class average in courses of 25 or fewer students must be a B or B+. The class average in courses of more than 25 students must be a B. The grading rules do not apply to independent research projects, Appellate Advocacy Competition, Labour Arbitration Competition or Trial Advocacy Competition. These rules are subject to the discretion of the Faculty at any Faculty of Law marks meeting. An instructor may seek and obtain an exemption from these rules at any Faculty of Law marks meeting.
1. reflects the change of course name from Moot Program to Appellate Advocacy Competition and includes the Labour Arbitration and Trial Advocacy Competitions.
2. abolishes the grade distribution rules for classes of more than 25 students. The current regulation states that, in classes of more than 25 students at least 10% must receive a grade of A- or higher, and no grade distribution rules apply in classes of 25 or fewer students.
3. reflects that three marks meetings are held in the academic year and instructors may seek and obtain an exemption from the grading rules at any of the marks meetings.
Recommended: That the current application deadline to the Academic Excellence Opportunity (AEO) in the Richard Ivey School of Business be changed from February 1st to December 15th.
Applications to the AEO have increased from 60 to 450 since the program was implemented in 1996. The application deadline for the HBA program is March 1st and 400-500 applications usually are received. Moving the deadline to December would permit the School's Program Services Department to process the applications earlier with the goal of extending decisions to students in May to coincide with offers from The University of Western Ontario. Western has lost some top scholarship applicants due to late offers to the AEO.
Moving the deadline to December 15th would also match the approximate time students are submitting applications to Ontario universities and would help to eliminate some confusion in regard to this process. Students must apply both to The University of Western Ontario and Richard Ivey School of Business. Often students apply to one and not the other, but if the application deadlines were similar, it might be less confusing to potential applicants.
The on-line application would be available in September to allow enough time to complete the application.

1b The following individuals and organizations are supporting term-funded scholarships for students through the Ontario Graduate Scholarships in Science and Technology (OGSST) or the Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) programs. Each year a report will be made to the Board of Governors and Senate listing the donors who, in the 12 months preceding April 30, have given in excess of $1,800 and who choose to be recognized. A gift of $1,800, when matched 2:1 by government funds, is sufficient to support one term of a graduate student's research scholarship.
It is preferable not to submit each individual term-funded scholarship through the established approval process for new awards, because these scholarships are numerous, may only exist for one year, and share similar selection criteria as required by the Faculty of Graduate Studies and the Government of Ontario. Therefore, only scholarships which are endowed in perpetuity will be submitted separately as part of the Scholarship Report to the Board.
|Donors of $1,800+ who choose to be recognized|
|Alzheimer Society of London and Middlesex|
|Muriel F. Askin|
|Mitchell and Kathryn Baran Family Fund|
|Birks Family Foundation|
|The Honourable J. Judd Buchanan|
