Dear CWSE Community,

It is with great sadness that we write to let you know that after a short battle with cancer, Roxana Ng, head of the CWSE and faculty member in the Adult Education and Community Development department at OISE, passed away January 12, 2013, surrounded by friends and family.

Roxana's obituary in the Toronto Star is here, and the Globe & Mail here. The funeral condolence page is here


The CWSE held open community space the week of January 14 -- 17th 2013, for everyone to join in remembering and mourning Roxana.

— Roxana Ng
