College of the North Atlantic supports the activities of the student body through its Student Representative Councils (SRC) at each campus and the College of the North Atlantic Student Union (CNASU) which is the “provincial” student union representing the entire student body. Each of these student organizations are governed by Operating Guidelines which can be obtained from the Student Development Officer, Counsellor, Student Representative Council President or online at .


Campus-based Student Representatives Councils aim to address the issues of the students locally, provincially, and nationally. In September of each year, an election is held at which time the student body elects its representatives for the Student Representative Council. The Student Representative Council may be involved in the organization and delivery of various extra-curricular activities on behalf of the student body such as:

  • Winter Carnival
  • Recreational/Athletic Activities
  • Dances
  • Student Newspaper
  • Yearbook
  • Christmas Raffle

Students are encouraged to become involved with their Student Representative Council and have a voice in the events that influence their educational experience.

  • To provide a forum in which the post-secondary students of College of the North Atlantic can work cooperatively in advancing the interests of the students who they represent.
  • To promote a better understanding of the needs and issues confronting the students of College of the North Atlantic.
