TCSA Elections

The TCSA is governed by a Board of Directors that is duly elected from the student membership each year. Elections are held in March, with a by-election held in late September/early October to fill any vacant positions. TCSA elections are open to all undergraduate students, and we encourage everyone to run for a position for a great opportunity to get involved with your student union, meet fellow student leaders, advocate for change on campus, and gain leadership experience.

Whether you are interested in running for a position in the election, presenting a question for referenda, or just curious about the process, you’ve come to the right place. In this section you will find all you need to know about TCSA elections and the referenda process, where and when elections events take place, and how to vote in our confidential online voting process.

To be eligible for a position on the Board of Directors, all candidates must:

i) Be at least eighteen years of age (or have reached their eighteenth birthday before ratification of the elections)
ii) Have not declared bankruptcy
iii) Be a member of the Association (an undergraduate or consecutive education student having paid the Association membership fee)
iv) Be eligible to work in Canada with supporting documentation. International students require a student permit with authorization to work off-campus. Please note that international students are not eligible to work any job on or off campus for more than twenty (20) hours per week.
