Student Help and Advocacy Centre

SHAC is a student-run advocacy and referral centre that provides a safe space for students to ask questions and get information.


  • Provide referrals and advocacy services on walk-in or appointment basis. Some of the issues that our services focus on include: academic, financial, housing/tenancy, human rights, legal, and university processes.
  • Offer free legal aid services during the fall and winter semesters with a lawyer / paralegal who holds office hours once a week.
  • Assist students in a confidential and compassionate manner to provide them with the information they need.
  • Strive to help as many people as possible in finding the resources they need to be successful in their endeavours.
  • Provide student-to-student support that is inclusive and equitable for all individuals.
