The Ukrainian Canadian Students’ Union (Ukrainian: Cоюз Українськoгo Студентства Канади (CУСК), French: Union des Étudiants Ukrainiens Canadiens), commonly known by its Ukrainian acronym, SUSK, in all three languages, is a national student organization composed of Ukrainian Students Organizations (USOs) at post-secondary institutions across Canada.

SUSK is a national member of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress.[1]


Formed in 1953 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, SUSK was active in Canadian post-secondary institutions for five decades before falling inactive in 2002.[2] It was revived at the XXII Congress of Ukrainian Canadians held in Winnipeg, in October 2007.[3][4] Student is the official publication of SUSK, having been published since 1968.[5]

SUSK hosts its national convention, SUSK Congress, at different locations each year. The first Congress was held in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1953.[6] Since 2007, the Congress has been held annually,[7] with the 2020 and 2021 events being hosted online. The most recent Congress was held in Edmonton, Alberta in 2022.[2]

During the month of May 2021, SUSK launched a National Campaign titled "Russian Aggression Awareness Month" and has expanded its activism since the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.
