Risk and Safety

Event support

If you are organizing an event on behalf of the university, Risk & Safety provides resources to help you plan with safety in mind.

Event planning during COVID-19

UFV continues to encourage virtual meetings and events whenever possible to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

If you are planning an in-person event, these documents will help you do so safely:


Arranging for security services at your event

UFV's security team is responsible for all security coverage during events taking place on UFV campuses.

  • Please get in touch with us to arrange your security coverage at least four business days before your event. (If you submit a request less than four days before your event, you may incur additional costs.)
  • We may request a meeting to discuss the details of your event
  • Cost info:
    • All security costs, including overtime and stat holiday pay if applicable, will be covered by your event budget
    • Guards are booked for a minimum shift of four hours
    • Last-minute requests for event security may incur additional costs
