FPSE-HRISC Speaker’s Tour 2023

FPSE-HRISC Speaker’s Tour 2023 | International Students in Canada (March 3 | 1pm PT)

RSVP for In-Person (Capilano University, Shipyard) or Online (Zoom)


University and college students in BC (and beyond) are reporting health, housing and food insecurity challenges. International students often face these and other challenges in navigating their schools, communities and governmentalities. Our moderated March 3rd afternoon panel will focus on longstanding (and current) issues facing international students, including discrimination and racism; tuition fee increases; health care, housing and food access challenges; job insecurity and changing workplace regulations; recruitment misrepresentation and/or challenging pathways to citizenship; administrative nightmares; access to union organizing and limitations on academic freedoms.

FPSE-BC’s Human Rights and International Solidarity Committee (HRISC) is our first of two Speaker’s Tour 2023 Panel discussions. On March 3rd our focus will be on International Students in Canada. This year we have assembled a dynamic group of 6 activist-scholars, advocates and organizers, including two undergrad and two masters’ students, along with two national-level student / union campaigners. We hope you can join us!

Register soon to avoid disappointment; and save this event in your calendar.
