We are living proof that by coming together and sharing resources - we can address some of the most pressing problems of our times. That is why we are asking for a $0.13 increase to our fee-levy bringing our fee-levy to $0.46 per credit. Help us continue to grow and thrive so we can all continue to grow. Together we can create the world we all need.

We have done this by offering things like subsidized groceries, food baskets, workshops like our recent mushrooms workshop, harm reduction and safer use/safer sex supplies and education, Pay-What-You-Can medicinal herbs, spices, and mushrooms, community events like our Fall Look Clothing Swap, operating a public and accessible space, Sex and Self Wellness Pantry, and use of our lounge and kitchenette with free wifi and without having to buy anything.
In 2016 we had to move our location in order to remain operable and to meet the rising needs of Concordia students and the wider communities we serve. This has increased our expenses significantly and we now need your support to continue. We want to be able to staff longer opening hours and to continue to grow to meet the ever increasing demand.
The issues we work on are now more pressing than ever as access to food and health is increasingly compromised and economic difficulties continue to impact communities.
