2020 has been a challenging year for post-secondary students across Canada, and no one knows the breadth of this hardship quite like students and recent graduates themselves. #CloseTheGaps is a grassroots campaign by students, for students, seeking to highlight the myriad challenges faced during this unprecedented year across the country. Whether these difficulties are due to COVID-19-related gaps in support, or whether this unprecedented year has simply exacerbated existing gaps, we want to help tell your story and bring it to the attention of the people who can make a difference!
#CloseTheGaps is an advocacy campaign powered by the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA). Established in 1995, the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA) is a non-partisan, not-for-profit, student organization composed of 23 student associations, representing 275,000 post-secondary students from coast to coast to coast. Through its partnership with the Quebec Students Union (QSU), CASA presents a national student voice to the federal government. CASA advocates for a Canadian post-secondary education system that is accessible, affordable, innovative and of the highest quality.
