    Advocating for access to education

    The British Columbia Federation of Students is a provincial alliance of 13 university and college students’ unions from every part of BC with a membership of 130,000 students.

    For more than 40 years, students’ societies in BC have worked together through the BCFS to provide students with an effective and united voice. Since tuition fees, student aid, and funding is set by the provincial government, it is important that students are represented at a provincial level.

    • Students Aim to Combat Period Poverty

      Menstrual products are a basic necessity, but for disadvantaged people or those living in poverty, it can be difficult to find products that are both affordable and sanitary. For students, this issue impedes our day-to-day functioning, and can often put us in undignified situations.
      The Federation’s Executive Committee voted unanimously to endorse the United Way’s Period Promise campaign, and signed on to their Period Promise Policy Agreement on July 3, 2019. With this agreement, the Federation has committed to ensure menstrual products are available free for staff, directors, guests, students, and volunteers in our office.
