About the NLCSA

The NLCSA is the Regional Governing Body serving NLC students, which is formed by acclamation by the elected President & Vice-President of each local Student Council branch. The NLCSA Meets three to four times per year (plus the Annual General Meeting).

Student Council branches include Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Chetwynd, Fort Nelson, Tumbler Ridge, Atlin, Dease Lake, and Online. Your membership to a branch is based on your home campus at the time of course registration. 

 
What they do:
  • Administer funds to local student councils through the Student Association fees collected to host activities and events.
  • Provides Student Emergency funding ($4,000 in 2020) matched by the provincial government and administered by the NLC Foundation.
  • Provides funding towards the NLC Student Association and Council Award. There are six awards of $200 each. They are administered by the NLC Foundation.
  • Support other provincial student councils’ campaigns if they feel it is warranted.
  • NLCSA Bylaws

Local Student Council branches

The student council consists of elected directors and unelected active members. It’s formed each year by a formal nomination and election process. The four elected directors’ positions available for nominations are: President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary

Student council meetings are held once a week for the Dawson Creek and Fort St. John branches, and once a month at other student council branches.

What they do:

All directors are guided throughout the year by a staff representative at their local campus. There are templates in place to help facilitate the process. You will learn how to run board meetings and develop leadership skills. Being on student council is a fun and rewarding experience.
