ESSCo Advocacy

Advocacy is one of the most important functions of ESSCO and serves all of its three main objectives. We advocate for engineering students in the province by representing student interests to government and provincial stakeholders, outlining student needs and providing recommendations for their fulfillment.

At ESSCO, our advocacy starts with researching student issues through our Working Groups, collecting large samples of data to understand the student take on issues ranging from co-op to sustainability to mental health. We outline these student opinions in a collection of reports, presentations and media, and use it to address our concerns with professional engineering organizations and school administrators each year.
