student government

The University of Ottawa Students’ Union has announced the details of its upcoming general elections, setting the voting period for March 25-27. Seven executive positions (up from five last election) and 22 seats on the union’s Board of Directors are up for grabs.

The Board of Directors of the University of Ottawa Students’ Union met on Sunday, where they passed a motion to take a pro-choice stance on abortion. The motion comes in the wake of controversy after an anti-abortion group regained the official club status they had lost under the school’s former student government.

The University of Ottawa Students’ Union marked the official launch of its office space, website, and service centres on Tuesday morning with an event featuring speeches from the university president and the Rideau-Vanier city councillor, along with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
