My name is Chandan and I am coming forward for this post because I always wanted to do something for the welfare of students by improving their methods of effective learning. Also, I wanted to increase the opening hours of the library on weekends, because the bus service is limited.

Hey Guys,

I am an International Student in my final year at CNC. Like many of you, I came to Canada with the hope of achieving all my goals and aspirations, knowing that the first step to success would be completing my studies. Over the past 2 years, it has been an incredible journey that has allowed me to grow personally, academically, and professionally; that's precisely why I would like to share some of my ideas with you, I can't promise that my proposals will be carried out, but I will certainly put them on the table:

  1. Free Grammarly premium accounts for all students.
  2. An anonymous complaint system.
  3. ln-person sessions on how to use Zoom, Moodie, CNC Connect, or any platform during upcoming orientations.
  4. Official sports clubs with financial support from CNC, not just the Students Union (including free uniforms, free transportation, and scholarships or discounts for sports performance).
  5. Free book packages or discounts for the top 3 students in each class for the next semester.
  6. The option for adults or mature students to opt out of Greenshield without similar or greater coverage.

Thank you for your support!

My name is Kartik Manchanda and I want to run for the elections for student council because primarily I want to be a helping hand in various student’s academic journey. I have seen many students struggling with education in term of course completion and choosing right program and course. Being a student, I understand this and I want to help others as well. Also, I want to encourage students to be a well-rounded including moral ethics and communication skills.
