Student Services (Gender, Sexuality, Labour, etc)
The Union for Gender Empowerment is a trans-positive feminist service of the Student Society of McGill University (SSMU). Their services include an alternative lending library (with over a thousand titles!); a co-op stocking pay-what-you-can ecologically responsible menstrual products, DIY sex toys, safer sex supplies, and gender empowerment items; and a zine library. The UGE also runs trans* 101/allyship and anti-oppression workshops for other organizations and projects, and has a resource binder with information about abortion services, counseling, and queer/trans*-friendly health services in Montreal.

The Association of McGill University Support Employees (AMUSE)is a labour union that represents ‘casual’ or ‘temporary’ employees at McGill. This includes both students and non-students in part-time and full-time positions. In fact, around 35% of casual employees are non-students. In total, our approximately 1500-strong members make up about 55% of McGill’s non-academic employees.
AGSEM was accredited in 1993 to represent Teaching Assistants at McGill, making us the oldest TA Union in the province. Invigilators joined AGSEM in 2010 and Course Lecturers in 2011. In the fall of 2013 an AGSEM General Assembly decided that Course Lecturers should have their own autonomous union: MCLIU.
The First Peoples’ House is dedicated to providing support for First Nations, Inuit and Métis students at McGill. Playing many roles, including those of residence, gathering place and resource centre, the First Peoples’ House is first and foremost a community. The First Peoples’ House also plans activities and special events throughout the year, such as the annual Pow Wow, to raise awareness within the McGill and Montreal communities regarding the past, present, and future aspirations of Indigenous peoples.
