  • Office Numbers are Bold
  • Click on a Person's name for details, links and a photo (if available)
  • NOTE: For the sake of efficiency, only the 5-digit campus extensions are listed here:  Take note here if you are dialling from off campus.
    • You can direct dial extensions starting with 3 by adding <area code>-53 in front of the five digits to make the seven digit external number.  For example, an internal extension of 31234 is reachable from off campus using the number 613-533-1234.
    • Extensions starting with 7 are not direct external lines and require that you dial the main access number 613-533-6000, followed by the 5-digit extension when the answering system requests it.
  • Our Main Office Fax number is 613-533-6669.
