    Remembering Professor Tomáš Hudlický, and how poorly Brock University treated him

    Local

    A Storied Career

    Few faculty members at Brock University brought the school more awards, research dollars, scientific citations, and reputational prestige than Professor of Chemistry Tomáš Hudlický.

    Recruited by the St. Catharines institution in 2003 from the University of Florida, Hudlický was, as the National Association of Scholars once wrote, “one of the most accomplished chemists in the subfield of organic synthesis.”

    Working to literally cure cancer during his time at Brock, he boasted the “rare, exceptional” distinction of being awarded three consecutive seven-year Tier 1 Canada Research Chair terms in 2003, 2010, and 2018.

    Local training program aims to integrate internationally educated healthcare professionals into Ontario work environment

    Local

    The Niagara Folk Arts Multicultural Centre is a not-for-profit organization that has been a pillar of the St. Catharines community since 1970. The charitable centre offers a variety of programs to support newcomers and helps them integrate into the local community.

    The centre recently launched a pilot Healthcare Navigator Training Program for Internationally Educated Healthcare Professionals (IEHPs) that provides support and advocacy for IEHPs entering the workforce in the Ontario healthcare system. Minister Monte McNaughton and the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development helped form and fund the program.

    “As our government continues to make historic investments in hospitals and long-term care, we expect to need 50,000 more workers in these fields over the next three years,” said Minister McNaughton in a statement. “That is why we are investing in innovative training programs that help us find qualified healthcare workers and provide newcomers in the community with the quality healthcare they deserve.”
