World University Service of Canada (WUSC) Refugee Program

The Camosun chapter of the WUSC started with a group of four passionate students in January of 2015. The group initially formed as a CCSS club and sociology class project with Dr. Francis Adu-Febiri and Dr. Francis Yee. The program has grown and is set to welcome the first student refugee to Camosun as early as September 2016.

The WUSC Camosun chapter thanks all the students who voted overwhelmingly in favour of the student refugee program levy in the fall of 2015. Without the successful referendum, the program would not be able to welcome the student.

WUSC is an international non-government-program based out of Ottawa. The organization’s main goal is to provide education for refugees around the world. The Student Refugee Program (SRP) brings students over from Africa, Asia, and the Middle East to study within Canadian post-secondary education.

Camosun’s International department also provided helping hand with providing funding for the refugee students class, accepting their admissions, and even including them in the homestay program.
