This is your student movement
Your National & Provincial Students’ Union
With more than 500,000 members at 65 students’ unions across Canada, the Canadian Federation of Students is the voice of post-secondary education in the country. Manitoba’s five member locals unite over 45,000 full - and part - time students.
Our Federation represents domestic and international students at the college, undergraduate and graduate levels, including full- and part-time students.
Lobby with Us
Federation representatives keep regular contact with officials at all levels of government, ensuring that student issues are amplified loud and clear.
Our member-driven campaigns help shape public opinion, consistently garner broad media attention, and put pressure on decision makers.
By analyzing trends and producing thorough research on the post-secondary sector, the Federation helps inform government proposals and campaign demands.
Our Federation provides cost-saving services to students by students. Including health benefits, discount programs, ethical purchasing, and more.
Campaigns & EventsVIEW ALL
Education For All
Education for All means a more affordable, accessible, high quality, publicly-funded post-secondary education system in Canada; a system that is ready to take on the challenges of today and tomorrow.
It is imperative that students continue to push for affordable, accessible, publicly funded and high-quality post-secondary education. An educated population drives the economy, spurs innovation and creates stable, dynamic and just communities. Learn more about our calls for Education For All!
Healthcare For All
The government removed international students and their dependents from accessing public healthcare in Manitoba. The change took effect in September 2018 with no consultation from students.
The Canadian Federation of Students fundamentally believes both education and healthcare are a public good and a human right that should remain accessible for whoever needs them, regardless of their origin. Take action to support International Student Healthcare and Healthcare for ALL!
Every year as part of our campaign to empower our members at large, elected directors and student union executives we organize a series of workshops based on important topics identified to us by our membership. These include sessions around skills, campaigns and advocacy. Follow our Instagram for the latest info on upcoming SKILLS events!
