Montreal, QC, November 16th, 2021 - HALEO, a center of clinical expertise in virtual sleep care, announced today that it has been awarded a three-year contract from the Student Life Services of the University of Montreal to provide care to the 45,000 students of the university. Specifically, the agreement complements a comprehensive range of services already offered to the student community through Student Life Services, and more precisely, through the Psychological Health and Consultation Center.

The study results,combined with HALEO’s highly successful pilot project, were the key drivers leading to the new agreement.
