Student Network Bake Sale

York U Students raise money with regular bake sales

If you’re a Canadian student with a passion for global health equity, you’ve come to the right place. Student engagement is invaluable to the work of Partners In Health Canada.

A good first step is to check out the Students for Partners In Health Facebook page. Launched by a group of McGill University undergrads, the page serves as information sharing hubs for post-secondary students interested in our work.

We have student chapters at the following universities:

  • University of Toronto
    • Downtown campus
    • Mississauga campus
    • Scarborough campus
  • York
  • McGill
  • Queen's
  • Western
  • University of British Columbia

If you're a student at one of the above chapters, and you're interested in getting involved, please send a note to Ian Pinnell at

If you're interested in starting a chapter at your own school, please fill out the New Chapter Application form, and then send a note to Ian Pinnell at indicating that you've submitted an application.

It's important to remember that no one can do this work alone. If you’re interested in forming a PIH Canada group on campus, reach out to friends and classmates who share your values. Talk about why you're inspired to take on this challenge and then send us a note – we'd love to hear your stories. Unfortunately, we don’t have the capacity to support your activities with banners, t-shirts, or financial resources, but we'd be thrilled to offer feedback and suggestions and connect you with other students at some of the schools who have already started – their experience will be a tremendous help.

There are many ways high school students can get involved. Speak to your student council or a teacher about forming a Partners In Health Canada club at your school. Read Mountains Beyond Mountains, engage with us on Facebook or Twitter, and keep an eye out for social justice initiatives in your community.
