Toronto is in the ‘Dish With One Spoon Territory’. The Dish With One Spoon is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land. Subsequent Indigenous Nations and peoples, Europeans and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect.


2 | What is the RSU?

WHAT IS THE RSU? Your Union,Your Voice. All full-time undergraduate and graduate students are members of the Ryerson Students’ Union. The RSU is the central student organization on campus, and is independent from the University. The students’ union works to protect and promote student rights, build community and provide cost-saving services. Our ultimate goal is to create an accessible space that supports students in their daily lives through the provision of services and student life. We strive for advocacy that recognizes the legitimacy of student representation and the validity of student rights. The students’ union achieves this by undertaking educational programming, campaigns, lobbying and social events that enhance the university experience for its members and the community as a whole.

Get Involved! Volunteer Today. [SCC311, 55 Gould Street] 416.979.5255 info@rsuonline.ca

Canadian Federation Of Students National Representation

cfs-fcee.ca The RSU recognizes that no individual students’ union, no matter how big or active, has the resources or political clout to effectively influence the provincial and federal government on its own. For that reason, the RSU and all of its members are united with students across Canada through membership with the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) – we are Local 24. In addition to this national and provincial advocacy, our members benefit from bulk-purchasing savings and services such as, the International Student Identity Card and the Student Saver Discount Program. The CFS has also designated constituencies to represent the diverse needs of students including: • Racialised students • Queer and Trans students • Students with disabilities • International students • Francophone students • Women students • Graduate students • Aboriginal students Through the CFS, graduate students are also members of the National Graduate Caucus and Indigenous students are part of the National Aboriginal Caucus.

The Mandate Of The Ryerson Students’ Union: Advocate And Lobby on behalf of our members to protect their rights.

4 | What is the RSU?

RSU EXECUTIVE On behalf of the Ryerson Students’ Union Executives, I would like to welcome you to what is about to be a great and exciting year! The RSU was created for students, by students. It is your space on campus to hang out, get involved with student groups or course unions, take advantage of our services, or start a new initiative. We are here to support students in multiple avenues of your lives, ranging from equity based issues to academic appeal support to receiving discounts on movie tickets. We have seen Ryerson University grow exponentially and the Students’ Union evolving with it. In the last 50 years of incorporation, the RSU has gone from being a small office in the POD basement to four levels of space, services and support. We have gone from representing a few thousand students to now representing 35,000+ Ryerson undergraduate and graduate students. The success and growth of the RSU couldn’t have happened without each one of our members. Whether you created a student group, went to an event, grabbed a meal at the Ram in the Rye, or voted for a representative, you have played a role in building the RSU to be what it is today. This year we take time to celebrate the past 50 years of the RSU since its incorporation in 1967, but we also celebrate the 50 years to come where the union can only grow to be bigger and better.

RSU COMMITTEES The Legacy Of Egerton Ryerson

Indigenous Action Committee The Ryerson Students’ Union has established a new initiative for Indigenous students to organise on campus.

Ryerson is named after the founder of Canada's Residential School system - a system responsible for the genocide of Indigenous people across Canada. It is important for all students to be aware and able to reflect on this history.

‘Toronto Is The Dish With One Spoon Territory’

Ryerson Aboriginal Student Services

“The Dish With One Spoon is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee, that has bound them to share the territory and protect the land. Subsequent Indigenous Nations and peoples, Europeans and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty, in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect.”

Truth and Reconciliation at Ryerson

The TRC is a big topic across Canada in regards to how First Nations, Inuit and Métis people are treated in Canada. At Ryerson, we encourage students to get involved in fighting for justice within both the academia and the broader community.

Equity and Social Justice Committee

Sustainability Committee

Students are more than just students. They hold various identities that impact how they encounter and access their education. The Equity and Social Justice Committee exists to raise awareness and build campaigns that address the needs of marginalised students.

The Ryerson Students’ Union has a long history of supporting students who want to fight for a more sustainable campus and community. From leading the closure of Gould Street, to advocating for our water bottle free campus, sustainability has always been one of RSU’s priorities.

From focusing on mental health awareness, to the facilitating of open and safe discussion spaces, the Equity and Social Justice Committee presents ideas and events that challenge systems of oppression, which include racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and various other forms of oppression.

Lend Your Ideas!

Get involved in your students’ union and help build a more inclusive campus community.

Take Action!

Stand up to oppression as an individual, in the classroom, through different social settings and everywhere you go! Challenge microaggressions, jokes, and sayings that are problematic.

Be An Ally!

Remember, to be an ally you must take action. Allyship is ongoing and requires consistency. Jump on board with our committee and be an active ally.

The Sustainability Committee is where the conversation starts in order to transform ideas into a reality. We invite and encourage students from across campus who have an interest in making Ryerson a more sustainable space to join the committee and be a part of the change. The Sustainability Committee meets regularly and is open to all RSU members. The committee functions in a variety of ways and has taken action to create innovative campaigns and actions on campus. Come out for a meeting or more and let's continue achieving our goal towards a more sustainable campus.

Transit Committee The Transit Committee is working together with other student unions to create and implement initiatives to help students commute in the most efficient and costly manner possible.

U-Pass The U-Pass is a student transit card that will significantly eliminate travel costs and increase accessibility. The U-Pass would be available for each individual registered as a full-time Ryerson student. We are building a framework to transform the U-Pass into a reality on Ryerson’s campus. We are lobbying for discounted TTC Metro links in the provincial government. While we lobby for the U-Pass, we will consistently be advocating for lower fares.

Dropbike An alternate transit initiative is cycling, an extremely efficient way to get around downtown Toronto. We are planning to collaborate with The University of Toronto who has launched Dropbike; Canada’s first dockless bike sharing system. How Dropbike Works? • Find a Dropbike through your smartphone, closest to your location • Ride wherever you need to go, Toronto wide • Park your Dropbike at any haven, marked in the app
