“Cоюз Українськoгo Студентства Канади” (CУСК), “Ukrainian Canadian Students’ Union”, or “Union des Étudiants Ukrainiens Canadiens” is a national student organization composed of Ukrainian Students’ Organizations (USOs) at post-secondary institutions across Canada. It was formed in 1953 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Though it fell inactive in 2001, SUSK was revived at the XXII Congress of Ukrainian Canadians held in Winnipeg, in October 2007. SUSK is also a National Member of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress.
"Student" or "Студент" is the official publication of the Ukrainian Canadian Students' Union (SUSK). The newspaper has served as a means of communication for Ukrainian Canadian student groups and alumni at universities across Canada for decades.
An annual Congress is held by a USO (Ukrainian Student Organization) somewhere in Canada, usually in May.
The 2016 National SUSK Congress (aka 'SUSKatoon') was held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan at the University of Saskatchewan (St. Thomas More College) from May 5–8. Topics covered include the Holodomor, Ukrainian Immigration to Canada, and effective social media.
The 54th Congress was held in Hamilton, Ontario in May 2012. It was hosted by the McMaster University Ukrainian Students’ Association and hosted over thirty delegates. The theme for the 54th Congress was "SUSK is the New Steel" as Hamilton is known for its steel production.
