Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA)

Established in 1995, CASA is a non-partisan, not-for-profit student organization composed of student associations from across Canada.


CASA represents undergraduate, graduate and polytechnic associations.


At its core, it advocates on behalf of post-secondary students to the federal government. When Canada’s leaders make decisions affecting our post-secondary education system, they turn to CASA for solutions.

  • Broadening eligibility requirements for Canada Student Loans Program
  • $80 million for the Student Work Placement Program
