Mourning victims of Flight PS752


Like all Canadians, we were shocked and heartbroken to hear the fate of Ukraine International Airlines PS752, killing all 176 people on board. Nineteen universities and four colleges across Canada lost students and professors among the 57 Canadian fatalities reported by the government.

Among them were Compute Canada users, four with connections to the University of Alberta and two to Concordia University.

These members of the Canadian academic community included professors and students. Some were well-established researchers. Others were just beginning to realize their full potential. All were gifted people whose lives and contributions to our world were cut short.

We join the families and loved ones of those who perished, our university community, the Iranian-Canadian communities, and all of Canada in mourning this tragic event.
