La Cite campuses in ‘safe mode’ following a threat, school says

The campuses of La Cite and l’Ecole secondaire catholique de l’Innovation in Ottawa’s east end are in secure mode as Ottawa police conduct an investigation.

Police tell CTV News Ottawa a police operation is underway in the 800 block of Aviation Parkway after police were called to the area just before 10:30 a.m. Friday.

La Cite says its Ottawa and Orleans campuses are currently in a safe mode, “following a threat”.

“No one can enter or leave their buildings at this time,” the school said on Twitter.

Ottawa’s French Catholic school board says l’Ecole secondaire catholique de l’Innovation has been placed in a safe mode following a recommendation from police. Ecole Montfort and College Samuel-Genest are in an “environmental lockdown.

“Students and staff are safe,” police said.
