Calling all big-idea people! Do you want to improve our lounges, study rooms and student spaces? Do you have awesome ideas, but need help with funding? Feds can help! Our Student Life Endowment Fund exists to help students fund these types of projects. Applications are due by March 27.
It's time to show off our democratic muscles by engaging with fellow undergrads at the General Meeting (GM) on March 21, 2019. This is where we make decisions on our undergrad experience - the power is in our hands. Make change and participate in this year's GM!
Together with over 75 post-secondary student associations across Canada representing over 1 million students, Federation of Students signed a letter voicing our collective disappointment with the provincial government's January 17 announcement.
