A message from the coordinator: Hi everyone! My name is Kandace and I am the new FoodBank Coordinator for the 2021 - 2022 school year. Many of you have met me already, and I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you throughout the semester. I am excited to be part of the team here at the Guelph Student FoodBank and wanted to reiterate that my primary role here is to provide support to you, our lovely visitors.
Why should I vote?
This is the first federal election where Millennials and Gen Z make up 40% of Canada’s eligible voters and this is the time to get informed! Learning about the candidates in your riding and getting familiar with each party’s platforms can help you cast a vote that you feel reflects your values.
Gen Z and Millennials are less likely to be contacted by candidates during campaigning. This oversight often means that we are less likely to participate or be involved in an election, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
On behalf of the Central Student Association, we are looking forward to the upcoming Fall 2021 semester. We hope everyone continues to remain safe and healthy over the coming academic year!
