If you are a graduate, law, consecutive education student, or an undergraduate medical student the SGPS is your student society. Your elected executive team and the staff of the SGPS work for you.

Your student organization represents and advocates for you on all levels of University administration and lobbies the federal, provincial, and municipal governments on issues crucial to the well being and success of graduate and professional students.

The executive, elected representatives, and volunteer committee members represent graduate and professional interests and participate in the governance of the University Senate, the Board of Trustees, the University Council, and over 40 University Committees.

In response to the needs and concerns of our members, we also run several services including your Health and Dental Plan, a Financial Assistance program, the Student Advisors program, and more.

Some Students May Experience a Black-Out Period at the Start of the Fall Term

Some students may experience a black-out period during September and October as the insurer finalizes the enrolment data. If this happens to you, please check your SOLUS account to make sure that you were assessed the SGPS Health and Dental fee.

The SGPS Health and Dental Plan is sponsored by the SGPS and administered by StudentCare.

To learn more about your benefits and how you can take advantage of them, please check out the link below.

If you have a question about your eligibility for the plan or about how you can submit a claim, please click below to contact the SGPS directly.

If you have an urgent question regarding your Health and Dental plan, please call (613) 776-1007 to speak to the plan provider, StudentCare, directly.
