Your VP Academic and VP External, along with many other student leaders across Canada, will be meeting with Members of Parliament, Senators, civil servants and other people with influence at Parliament Hill in Ottawa during Advocacy Week (November 18-22). Some of the advocacy priorities for the year are comprised of several policies including changing how the Canadian Student Loan Program assess need, creating mental health initiatives on campuses, as well as lifting the two percent cap on funding increases to the Post-Secondary Student Support Program (PSSSP).
