British Columbia Federation of Students
All students at Camosun College are members of the British Columbia Federation of Students; a democratic Provincial organization is comprised of several student unions across British Columbia. Camosun College Student Society sends elected members bi-annually to develop policies, campaigns, and services that benefit over half-a-million members across Canada.
The British Columbia Federation of Students works much like a co-operative to provide products and services at a better price. BCFS is also a lobbying agent to influence government policy changes that affect students directly. Government historically has provided a majority of funding for post-secondary education, so having an organization that can get the ear of the government is important.
Camosun Students voted to join the British Columbia Federation of Students and the Canadian Federation of Students in a referendum held in 1991.
