The staff at Willis College now wear red on Fridays. We encourage all of our students to follow our lead. Our Canadian military has made many sacrifices in the name of peace, not only for Canada, but for many other countries around the world.
Wearing red on Fridays is a symbolic gesture to show fellow Canadians and our troops that we care and honour those who fight and have fought for our freedom.
At Willis, we are fortunate enough to have several Veteran students and staff at both the Ottawa and Arnprior campuses. Willis College will soon have many more Veteran students and staff members. Our President & CEO, Rima Aristocrat, has founded the Veteran Friendly Transition Program (VFTP) to support and train Veterans as they transition from military life to meaningful and gainful employment. Our students will share lounge space, so we encourage all of our students to get to know our Veterans.
