International Student Identity Card (ISIC)
At the beginning of every academic year, the Federation travels around the province to locals during orientation events to issue International Student Identity Cards (ISIC) to members. The International Student Identity Card gives students discounts in countries across the globe and here at home it serves to cut the cost of VIA Rail and Greyhound tickets and other travel services. ISIC would be distributed at our campus in September 19-20, 2011. Students, who are unable to collect ISIC card from Grad Club, can come to the SOGS office (UCC 260).
