What is a Fee Levy Group?

A fee levy group is defined as  following:

“[…] student organizations and initiatives at Concordia University that are student-elected through the referendum process. Fee levy groups are made up of Concordia undergraduate (and sometimes graduate students) as well as community members from wider Montreal communities. Fee levy groups receive all or part of their operating budgets from a per-credit Concordia student fee levy. Fee levy groups are autonomous from the administrations of Concordia University, the CSU, the GSA, and all academic bodies and associations.” – from http://concordiacommunity.org/about/

Our Current Fee Levy Groups

The CSU’s Off-Campus Housing and Job Resource Centre is your resource for housing issues and workers’ rights. We provide legal information to students and members of the Concordia community, offer a classifieds website to find work and housing, and give workshops across campus and in the community. Due to COVID-19, we are working remotely until Concordia University reopens. Please email us at hojo@csu.qc.ca to book an appointment and we’ll gladly help you from there! HOJO has a series of annual campaigns on themes such as job and apartment search tools, rental increases, and tenant’s rights.

We are a free service that provides legal information, referrals, and accompaniment in both French and English to undergraduate/graduate students, CSU clubs, and other associations. Volunteer law students are available to assist with legal information and research, but only lawyers are able to represent someone in court, prepare court documents on their behalf, or advise them on their best legal options. The Legal Information Clinic works to provide students with the best possible options and resources that will assist them in receiving the fairest possible treatment under the law and to allow them to make the most suitable decision.
