AUSU Advocacy Week 2018

Our latest executive blog is now posted, all about Advocacy Week 2018 in Ottawa – complete with photos!


This year, all three members of our executive team travelled to Ottawa in November 2018 as part of the CASA (Canadian Alliance of Students’ Associations) delegation, ready to bring the needs of post-secondary students in Canada to the attention of the federal government.


Some highlights of Advocacy Week included:

  • Over 160 meeting with Members of Parliament (MPs), Senators, and other stakeholders
  • Consultation with Mental Health Commission of Canada
  • Meeting with Economic and Social Development Canada & Native Women’s Association of Canada
  • Fireside Chat with various Canadian senators
  • Reception at the Centre Block building of Parliament
  • .. and more!
