Canadians at UVA

As a Canadian living in the US it has become a habit to look out for fellow Canadians at the universities where I have worked. Below is a list of Canadians working, studying, and playing varsity sports at the University of Virginia. I also maintain a similar list for my previous institution, the University of Denver. Please let me know of any updated and omissions! Last Updated: August 29, 2022.
