Campus Advisory Update 2 - Threatening Social Media Post

Dear campus community,

I am writing to advise you that Safety and Security and the Kings RCMP know about another threat posted on June 20. It has subsequently been deleted from the social media platform. The post reiterated a threat of violence against individuals and our campus for fall 2023.

The latest post will be used as evidence to assist an active Kings RCMP investigation.  

We realize there is little information to act upon in this message, but sharing what we know about the situation is important. If you want to update your awareness of our Emergency Procedures and Alert system, please visit Emergencies and Alerts on the Safety and Security website.

The RCMP advised that there is no indication of an immediate threat or required action. We continue to work with them and are maintaining enhanced monitoring and patrols.

This is a disturbing subject. If you feel anxious or overwhelmed, students might consider consulting with the Counselling Centre at (902) 585-1246 or Acadia also has a list of online mental health tools that may be helpful.

Acadia employees can access support through Acadia’s Employee and Family Assistance Program and are encouraged to speak with their supervisors about concerns.

Additionally, if you see suspicious activity or a concerning social media post, or feel unsafe, call Safety and Security’s 24-hour phone line at (902) 585-1103 or email

Anyone with information related to the threatening posts is asked to contact Kings District RCMP at 902-679-5555. To remain anonymous, call Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submit a secure web tip at, or use the P3 Tips App.

Do not engage with individuals (in-person or online) who could pose a threat. In the event of an emergency, dial 911.

Thank you for all you are doing to help our campus community.
