#WeTheStudents: Ottawa Skills Symposium
Ottawa, Ontario
August 21, 2019
Over the past year, students across the province have responded to massive cuts to the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) and attacks on student groups and unions like campus press, pride centers, radio stations, food centers, clubs and students’ unions.

If you want to fight back against these cuts and advocate for a more accessible and affordable post-secondary education join us on Wednesday, August 21 for the Ottawa Skills Symposium.

The #WeTheStudents Skills Symposium will bring students from across the province to regional training sessions to learn about issues in post-secondary education and hone in their skills to better operate events, campaigns and services.
