Please note that, while VUSAC is still committed to this initiative, this page is somewhat outdated at the moment. As of writing this, the Ryerson Vic One Stream has been renamed the "Education" Stream.

Egerton Ryerson was an influential advocate for the Canadian Residential School System. Despite this, Victoria College continues to honour Ryerson with a residence building and an academic stream named for him.  VUSAC is calling for both Ryerson House and Ryerson Vic One Stream to be renamed through an open, consultative process.

For information on Ryerson’s history and to see the full details of our project, read our proposal at this link.
