Expanding the Justice Institute Students' Union and BC Federation of Students membership to students studying at all JIBC campuses and to those taking online classes will allow all JIBC students to be represented not only to the Institution administration, but also the the municipal, provincial and federal governments.
The Justice Institute Students’ Union is an organization for students and run by students. Formed by referendum in 2019 JISU’s goal is to make the lives of its members (that’s you!) better both on and off-campus.
The BC Federation of Students is a provincial alliance of over 170,000 university and college students in every region of BC. By working with these groups JIBC students are joining students around BC with an effective and united voice. Since tuition fees, student aid, and funding are set by the provincial government, it is important that students are coordinated, organised and represented at a provincial level.
WE ARE BC STUDENTS: VOTE YES TO THE JUSTICE INSTITUTE STUDENTS' UNION AND THE BRITISH COLUMBIA FEDERATION OF STUDENTS
The Justice Institute Students’ Union and the BC Federation of Students will be holding a referendum that aims to:
- provide advocacy to support the needs of all JIBC students
- broaden access to student services like the Deals App and the extended health and dental benefits plan to members at all campuses
- create campus life and extracurricular activities
Being a student is not easy, we are all juggling many life commitments while attending school. Being a part of an advocacy organization allows students' voices in British Columbia to be united for change that will make our lives and communities better.
It’s up to you now to vote yes to join the Justice Institute Students' Union and the British Columbia Federation of Students, and join hundreds of thousands of students across BC.
Voting days are March 17-20, 2022. Vote Yes to JISU and the BCFS.
