Thank you for supporting student journalism!


Hi all, 

It’s good to see everyone back on campus. The Times team has been busy with our election, sports and campus news coverage this September. We're eager to get you plenty of stories about your community. It's lively again out there! If you see one of us walking fast around campus with our cameras and notepads, please stop us and say hi. We'd really like to ask you some questions. 

Today, the second National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we'll see you at some of the events on campus. We want to listen, share what we learn and tell our community's stories.

— Liam Fox, editor

The Observatory, located just before the bridge in A building, closed regular operations last Friday until further notice due to staffing shortages.

It comes less than a month after most classes resumed for the fall semester and the Observatory opened for the season.

“We’re just struggling to find qualified full-time staff,” said Brian Kitchen, the senior manager of hospitality services. “Unfortunately we just weren’t able to fill the vacancies, and with an increase of catering and events it just became the reality of our situation. We weren’t able to operate both the Wolves Den and the Observatory at the same time.”

With most students returning to campus for the fall semester, parking has become a sore point for students who drive.

Roch Lafond, manager of parking, lockers, coin ops and card services at Algonquin College, said the college sells approximately 3,000 permits at the beginning of each academic year, which includes weekly, monthly, and annual passes.

“The amount of passes sold this year is anticipated to be similar to our pre-pandemic levels,” said Lafond.


In honour of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, Algonquin College is hosting a screening of the multi-award-winning 2021 film Beans on Friday.

The semi-autobiographical film takes place during the 1990 Oka Crisis, a 78-day land dispute between a group of Mohawk people and the Quebec town of Oka.

Guests are invited to gather in C-building's Nawapon at 4 p.m. for light food and refreshments and will be ushered to the screening in N-building's Big Black Box Theatre .

Men's soccer Wolves win in clash with Knights to wrap up strong homestretch
by: Liam Fox

The Algonquin Wolves men’s soccer team improved to five wins and one loss in the season with a 3-0 win against the Fleming Knights on Saturday.

The Wolves came out of the gate strong in the 10th minute with a header off of a corner kick narrowly saved from a jumping grab by Fleming Knights' goalkeeper Logan Scott, but the team soon opened the scoring seven minutes later with another header off a corner kick by striker Latif Shaif.

In the 37th minute, the Wolves extended their lead 2-0 courtesy of a shot by centre-back Alban Meto that found its way into the corner of the net.


On the beautiful sunny afternoon of Sept. 15, donors and staff gathered in the Innovation Research Lab building at the Perth campus to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the campus.

The Ontario Vocational Centre opened in 1965 on what is now the college’s Woodroffe campus in Ottawa. The Perth campus started operating in 1967 when the OVC and Eastern Ontario Institute of Technology merged to create the new Algonquin College of Applied Arts and Technology.

By 1969, construction was underway on a permanent building for the Perth campus. Opening in 1970, the new campus featured a 22,500 square-foot facility that held 22 classrooms and three shops.


Campus Life returns stronger than ever.

The start of this new semester has been busy, full of events, exciting and no doubt with a touch of nervousness for some. Learners are filling the halls of our campuses in numbers not seen since the pandemic began and face-to-face events are again a reality.
