Voting in the MUN Students’ Union By-Election & Referendum will open November 5-6, 2019.
You may also visit any of the physical polling stations around campus.
Questions about the Election or Referendum can be directed to the Chief Returning Officer at email@example.com.
The referendum question is as follows:
- The sponsorship of refugee youth would be implemented through the World University
Service of Canada’s Student Refugee Program (SRP). This program identifies refugee
students in need of urgent resettlement and provides them with the opportunity to build a
better future through higher education in Canada.
- World University Service of Canada is a Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to
improving education, employment, and empowerment opportunities for youth, women,
and refugees in more than 25 countries around the world.
100% of funds from the student levy will be used for the settlement and education of the
sponsored student at MUN.
- To date, students of 83 Canadian post-secondary institutions have changed the lives of
over 1,800 refugee youth through the SRP.
“Do you support the creation of a new student levy of $2.00 per semester collected by MUN to fund the sponsorship of a refugee youth’s post-secondary education at Memorial University?”
CHOOSE: YES | NO
It is important for students to vote in this referendum, and to become educated on the issue. Questions about the WUSC refugee program can be directed to the World University Services of Canada (WUSC) MUN branch.
