Together we CanAssist.


Engaging students is of enormous importance to CanAssist, not only because we are part of the University of Victoria but also because we recognize the many benefits of making young people aware of disability issues. To date, several thousand students from UVic and beyond have taken part in our activities in numerous ways: as part of co-op work terms; as longer-term graduate students; as volunteers; on overseas exchange programs; and as part of academic courses or student practica. Their participation continually enriches our program by bringing passion, fresh perspectives and innovative thinking.

While we cannot list all the students who are currently participating in CanAssist activities, we highlight here those who have joined us in a more formal capacity. For more information on our student engagement activities, please see the Programs and services section.
