Local and Provincial Campaigns

Squash the Squeeze

Squash the Squeeze is a provincial campaign that focuses directly on funding cuts by the provincial government affecting Post-Secondary education.

Don't Close the Doors

NISU actively campaigns for the reinstatement of funding for Adult Basic Education by sending post cards to the government, presenting to the government our asks, and lobbying for endorsements from our local governments and coalitions.

Water Bottle Filling Stations

In September 2011, members of the North Island Students’ Union began lobbying the college for a commitment to make a progressive and sustainable change. The result was a commitment to install public water bottle filling stations at NIC campuses and centers.

Students are Voting

After a successful Federal campaign getting students out to the polls in the last election, BCFS members across the country joined again in the Spring of 2017 to gather pledges from students to get out and vote and make sure that post-secondary education and funding issues were important topics in this years’ election.

Fight for $15

NISU joined the provincial campaign in the call for a $15 minimum wage by distributing information to its members and pushing for students and the community to sign the petition and call for a livable wage for all.

Comox Valley Campus Parking Fees

After NIC put in parking fees on the Comox Valley campus in the Fall of 2016, NISU worked hard with members to make sure student voices and concerns were heard by the college. Parking fees are now being reduced for the 2017/2018 academic year!
