AUSUnight Student Social

Student lives have been significantly impacted by COVID-19, and there is a long road to recovery. This month, AUSU is partnering with the Canadian Alliance of Students Associations (CASA) and the Quebec Student Union (QSU) for a month of digital advocacy, representing 365,000 students across Canada. This is one of the largest advocacy efforts ever hosted by students! Student leaders will meet digitally with Member of Parliament to bring forward advocacy priorities and ask the federal government for ways to support students through Canada’s economic recovery and beyond.

This year, the Advocacy Month will be focusing on five major topics that have been identified as priorities for students across Canada, including:

  • improving access to affordable childcare.
  • reducing mental health barriers for Indigenous post-secondary students.
  • expanding access to trade re-skilling.
  • streamlining the ability for international students to work in Canada.
  • increasing the Canadian Research Granting Agencies student scholarship funding.

AUSU will ensure that the voices of Athabasca University students are heard, and the unique perspective of distance education students is considered when supports are being put in place for students at the federal level.
