After days of laborious counting, here are the results to the winter elections' referenda.


There has been discussion about creating a food-bank on-campus to provide emergency assistance to students and university members.

The ISO is officially recognized by the University and Office of Student Affairs as a student run, non-profit, independent, advocacy organization comprised of international students, as well as Canadian students interested in internationalism. Currently operating under the Centre for International Programs. The ISO provides support and advocacy to international students, as well as organized cross-cultural events for the university campus at large.

The ISO realizes that there are currently no specific scholarships for in course international students, and is thus in the process of forming an endowment fund for such a purpose.

Would you support the contribution of $0.50 per full time undergraduate student per semester (indexed to cost of living) by the ISO? 90% would be directed towards the establishment of the endowment fund, and 10% would be used to fund the ISO.

Yes 1603
No 981
