Your National & Provincial Students’ Union

Our Federation represents both full- and part-time, domestic and international students at the college, undergraduate, and graduate levels.
Lobby with Us
Federation representatives keep regular contact with officials at all levels of government, ensuring that student issues are amplified loud and clear.

By analyzing trends and producing thorough research on the post-secondary sector, the Federation helps inform government proposals and campaign demands.
As a member, we’ll provide you with essential cost-saving services like health benefits, discount programs, ethical purchasing, and more.
