Student Help and Advocacy Centre

SHAC is a student-run advocacy and referral centre that provides a safe space for students to ask questions. SHAC provides human rights advocacy, and academic, legal (including landlord/tenant issues), and financial resources. SHAC strives to eliminate discrimination against people facing all forms of oppression, as well as the stigma of asking for help. SHAC staff and volunteers will assist students in a confidential and compassionate manner to provide them with the information they need. SHAC hopes to work in solidarity with others to proactively address relevant campus issues. We provide student-to-student support that is inclusive and equitable for all individuals.
