AUSU Bylaw Changes

AUSU has held two member consultations about the bylaw changes we are proposing to align our bylaws with the Post Secondary Learning Act. You can read about these changes here.

If you did not get a chance to attend a meeting and would still like to give some feedback, stop by our Bylaw Forum!

The first of two readings of the motion to change the bylaws will be during our March council meeting.

CASA Advocacy Week

AUSU Executives Shawna Wasylyshyn and Brandon Simmons just got back from Ottawa where they represented AU students during the CASA Advocacy Week!

CASA (Canadian Alliance of Students’ Associations) brought together close to 60 student leaders, representing over 300,000 post-secondary students from across the country, to Ottawa as a united front, collectively pushing for further investments in higher education and increased support for students.

From February 22 to 29, they had over 150 meeting with Members of Parliament to address advocacy priorities set by the CASA membership, including a meeting with the Prime Minister. We are proud to announce that our VP Finance won the award for “Most Memorable Meeting” for his meeting with MP Matt Jeneroux!

For more information about Advocacy Week and the issues advocated for, visit the CASA website here or email the AUSU President at president@ausu.org.
