Based on their understanding of the desire of the students of one or both of the two institutions, the SA, DC and UOIT are collaboratively facilitating the process for a separate DC student association and a separate UOIT student association to emerge. This is a fresh start for student leadership to students of each institution. UOIT’s students will have their own student organization for the first time in UOIT’s history, and DC will once again have its own student organization.
An election will be held on March 22-23 with two separate ballots (one for UOIT students and another for DC students). The separate ballots will include a question asking students of the respective institution whether they support the formation of a new association specifically for them. It will also provide an opportunity for the students to elect the Executive and Directors of each of the UOIT student association and DC student association. The positions available are set out below.
No elections will be held to replace the directors and executives of the current SA.
Separate town hall information meetings will be conducted for students of each institution at all campus locations.
This process is based on a Court Order that was issued, reflecting the agreement reached among the SA, DC and UOIT. A link to the Order is provided under the “Resources” heading below.
More details are set out in the Student Association Update that is available under the “Resources” heading below.
