Our Mission

The Syrian Students’ Association of McGill is a student group of the SSMU, an undergraduate student society at McGill University. We are a secular, apolitical club that is not affiliated with nor subsidized by any political party or religious group. Our club’s mission can be summarized in 4 main articles:

  • Social mission: assist newly settled Syrians in Montreal by helping them with social integration and navigating available resources, from applying to University or finding language classes.
  • Humanitarian mission: support Syrian refugees, both locally and abroad, through supporting organizations that provide humanitarian relief and raising awareness on McGill campus about the Syrian refugee crisis and conflict.
  • Educational mission: empower Syrian youth by supporting organizations that offer educational resources.
  • Cultural mission: bring the Syrian community in Montreal together by holding cultural and social events.
