The National Graduate Caucus of the CFS may be interesting to those of you concerned with lobbying on behalf of grad students across the country.
The National Graduate Caucus (NGC) is Canada’s voice for graduate students in Canada. With over 60,000 students at 31 campuses from St. John’s to Victoria, the NGC puts the issues of graduate students on the national and provincial agendas.
Through the Federation’s national research department, the NGC monitors legislative developments as they pertain to graduate students. The research and communications capacity of the Federation also insures that the voice of graduate students has been heard on issues as varied as copyright legislation, whistleblower protection, student debt, the licensing agreement students sign with the National Library of Canada, and academic freedom.
