All Day Postponed – 2020 Spring Convocation (Brantford)

COVID-19 Update

Wilfrid Laurier University has decided to postpone spring convocation ceremonies to a future date. This will allow us to hold convocation in-person and on-campus when it is safe to do so, and graduating students can celebrate together with family, friends and the rest of the Laurier community. | Learn More


Fall convocation ceremonies on the Brantford campus take place in the Sanderson Centre for Performing Arts.

Please note that tickets are required for guests to attend. Each student can claim up to 3 tickets from the convocation portal. Guests without tickets are welcome to view the ceremony through live streaming.

Students should refer to the Guide to Graduating for next steps and how to access the convocation portal. Dates and times are subject to change. Please check LORIS to confirm your ceremony date and time.

  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Connexions: Sustainable Food, Ecosystems, and Biodiversity

    In this webinar we'll explore why biodiversity and ecosystems management are important components for building sustainable food systems. You'll hear from researchers working directly with communities engaged in food production practices that are centred on biodiverse ecosystems. Drawing on community-based research in Brazil, Ecuador, and the Northwest Territories, you'll learn about the unique challenges facing food systems actors and how communities are using agroforestry and other ecological food production principles to guide their work.
