Welcome to all current and potential students interested in pursuing a Forensic Sciences degree. We are very excited with the many new developments including second year in a row for funding from Ontario Ministry of Education.

The Forensic Sciences have a successful mentorship program with an annual Best Mentor-Mentee pair award.  We received an overwhelming response from students to participate as mentors. A dedicated blackboard website effectively communicates with all the particiapnts . Monthly meetings are organized for all the members to update and guide them on various academic issues. All the members are working enthusiastically to make this program successful. 

We have a very successful annual conference Trends in Forensic Sciences: This is the only University sponsored Forensic Sciences conference in Canada.

This conference provides insight into the diversity of the ever growing fields of Forensic Sciences.

The conference day is highlighted with:
