Federal budget

Members play a key role in influencing federal policy by contributing to the development of the Federation’s advocacy positions, and providing input to any major submission, recommendation, or statement from the Federation. They can stay in the loop through communiques and participate in information sessions about government decisions that affect the academic community.  

Also, members may share their pre-budget recommendations with the Federation at any time by emailing contact@federationhss.ca.
