SUSK – Союз Українського Студентства Канади

Who We Are

“Cоюз Українськoгo Студентства Канади” (CУСК), “Ukrainian Canadian Students’ Union”, or  “Union des ÉtudiantsUkrainiensCanadiens” is a national student organization comprised of Ukrainian Students’ Organizations (USOs) at post-secondary institutions across Canada. It was formed in 1953 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Though it fell inactive in 2001, SUSK was revived at the XXII Congress of Ukrainian Canadians held in Winnipeg, in October 2007.

SUSK’s mandate is to serve as a national forum through which concerns and issues relevant to Ukrainian Canadian students are discussed and acted upon. It is the coordinating body for Ukrainian Students’ Organizations (USOs) throughout Canada. SUSK works to develop the leadership potential of all its members and encourages all students to explore, honour, and celebrate their Ukrainian identity.



Since the 1960’s, SUSK has been creating different newspapers, featuring contributions from Ukrainian students around the world. Although the best known publication is Student/Студент, others include Studenetz, Чутки, МайжеСтудент, and SUSK Новини.

All of these publications have been digitized on the “Student” archive website at


SUSK Congress

Each year, a National SUSK Congress takes place in a Canadian city and is hosted by a local USO. The National SUSK Congress brings together students from across Canada and serves as a forum for students to learn from both professional speaker sessions and one another.
