Convocation is a special time where our University community comes together to celebrate and share the accomplishments of our exceptional Lakehead University graduates along with distinguished honorees. This spring, our Convocation ceremonies will be hosted virtually due to the ongoing uncertainties related to the pandemic and our ability to gather safely together.

Our 56th Convocation ceremonies will consist of two Main Convocation ceremonies for each of our campuses, along with Faculty-specific Convocation ceremonies.

Join us as we celebrate our graduates from the Classes of 2020 and 2021. Click here to join us LIVE.

To Lakehead University’s Graduating Class,

I want to offer my personal congratulations to each of you graduating today.

You will have entered university coming from many different places and many different backgrounds, yet you clearly share a commitment to learning and a willingness to work towards the achievement of the goals you have set for yourselves. Those qualities will serve you well as you step into a future of your shaping.

Your university education will have given you the knowledge and skills that are starting points for those next steps.

Best wishes to each of you in all your future endeavours.
