The Vancouver Island University WUSC (World University Service of Canada) Local Committee is a group of students passionate about making a difference in their global community. WUSC is a Canadian Non-profit Organization, whose biggest project is the Student Refugee Program (SRP). The SRP provides student refugees with the opportunity to come and study in Canada. As a local committee, since 2009, currently we fundraise so that 2 students per year can come study at VIU. We provide them with social and financial support as they make the first steps in what’s sure to be a journey of a lifetime.

We fundraise and raise awareness through events on and off campus as a Local Committee, such as the Uniterra Symposium, Fair Trade & Baking sales and the Annual Harambee Gala Dinner.
