About Us

Undergraduates of Canadian Research-Intensive Universities (UCRU) is an informal coalition of student associations whose mandate is to advocate to the Canadian federal government for an affordable, inclusive and high-calibre undergraduate university education with opportunities for increased access to undergraduate research. Our coalition began in 2015 to advocate on issues that disproportionately and uniquely affect undergraduates from Canada’s U15 universities – which is what sets our strategic advocacy priorities apart from other student advocacy organizations at the federal level. We collectively represent over 225,000 university students across Canada. UCRU's membership is open to the student associations of the U15 group of Canadian research intensive universities.
