World University Services Canada (WUSC)

World University Service of Canada (WUSC) is a Canadian non-profit organization that partners with universities across the country in order to achieve its goals of increasing youth education, empowerment, and economic opportunity. The WUSC McGill local committee focuses primarily on the WUSC Student Refugee Program (SRP). Through this program each year students from different refugee situations come to Canada to become residents and to continue their studies. The students of the local committee are in charge of meeting these students at the airport, helping them settle in, and generally ensuring that their first year at McGill, and the years that follow, go as smoothly as possible. Aside from the SRP program, the local committee also hosts talks and bake sales to raise awareness of, and money for, other WUSC programs such as their sustainability initiatives and their efforts to improve women’s access to education.
