This March, in addition to voting for Faculty and Centre Representatives, you’ll also have the opportunity to vote on a referendum question relating to a proposed Health and Dental Plan.

The referendum question will be: Are you in favour of the Athabasca University Graduate Students’ Association implementing a mandatory student health and dental plan for full-time, program students living in Canada, as per the information available, YES or NO?

Voting on the referendum question will happen in conjunction with the Faculty and Centre Representative election. The polls will be open from March 11 – 14 and the ballot will include both the referendum question and the faculty/centre representative election ballot.
