Events with Minors

Students groups are permitted to host events and activities for minors. Some of these activities/events include, but are not limited to tutoring programs, fitness classes, science camps, etc. 

A minor is a person who is under the age of 18 who is not a student at the University of Alberta. This includes elementary, middle school and high school students. 

It is important for student groups to understand their responsibility for keeping minors safe for the duration of their activity/event.

Groups that host events with minors are required to have the following: 

  • Primary and Secondary Event Organizers. 
  • Risk Assessment Plan and Emergency Action Plan. These are required for all high-risk events and help groups prepare for worst-case scenarios and emergencies.
  • Insurance may be required. 
  • Waivers and Informed Consent Forms signed by all participants. These documents will be created by the Student Life Team to be administered by the student group.

Depending on the nature of your event, there may be additional event requirements your student group must meet. The Student Life Team will communicate any additional requirements as necessary.

More information on events with minors can be found in Event Organizer Training.
