Who We Are

Collectively we are a group of student affairs/academic advising professionals dedicated to promoting awareness of academic advising across Canada.

We are also two of the co-chairs of the Canadian Association of College and University Student Services (CACUSS) Community of Practice for Advising, and one-half of the co-chairs for the Global Advising Community (NACADA) Canada Interest Group.
