The University of Toronto’s International Summer Theatre Programs adhere and conform to all Canadian laws and policies, which all students are expected to follow. The following points are the most important rules to be taken into account in all situations as when in residence, classrooms, and during activities.
The consumption of alcohol is forbidden for students under the age of 19. Under Canadian law, no one under the age of 19 is permitted to drink alcohol. If you are caught consuming, under the influence, in possession of alcohol, or is distributing alcohol, the police may be notified (along with your parents/guardian/group chaperone, if applicable). The consequences of these actions may result in immediate expulsion from the program and being sent home.
There is no smoking permitted inside any of the University of Toronto’s buildings. Smoking is not permitted inside the school or residence. Smoking is only permitted in designated areas outside of the school buildings and residence. Please be aware of all non-smoking signs in and around the campus. In the province of Ontario, it is illegal to smoke inside any building. The consequences of breaking this law can result in very large monetary fines, immediate expulsion from the program and being sent home.
Illegal drugs are not permitted. Drugs are not tolerated and are a very serious matter. If you are caught using, under the influence of drugs, in possession of drugs, or is distributing drugs, the police may be immediately notified along with your parents/guardian/group chaperone. The student may be arrested by the police as well as being immediately expelled from the program and being sent home.
Fake identification cards (I.D.s) are not permitted at any time. If you are caught using or in possession of a fake I.D., the police (along with your parents/guardian/group chaperone, if applicable) may be notified. Identity fraud is a crime.
Bullying of any kind will not be tolerated. The University of Toronto’s International Summer Theatre Programs do not condone bullying and/or picking on anyone. In accordance with the University of Toronto’s Code of Student Conduct, no student shall engage in any disrespectful conduct based on one’s race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, sex, sexual orientation, creed, age, family status, handicap, and/or any action that is known to be unwelcome by any student.
If you have a problem or issue with another student or staff member, please be sure to tell either the Program Coordinator and/or a staff member immediately in order to promptly resolve the issue. Mutual respect between all students and staff members is expected. Any breach of this respect may result in disciplinary action and/or immediate expulsion from the program and being sent home.
