SSF Fees

The Seneca Student Federation Incorporated (SSF Inc.) is your student government representative at Seneca College.  

The Seneca Student Federation (SSF) provides services, resources, discounts and activities that benefit and meet the needs of Seneca students in a fiscally responsible manner within a learning environment. From on-campus programs to off-campus trips and activities, the SSF strives to make student life better, primarily through advocating for student rights.

Student Choice Initiative

On January 27, 2019, the Ontario government introduced the Student Choice Initiative. What this means is that  beginning in September 2019, students will have the opportunity to opt-out of any non-essential SSF ancillary fees. Students should be aware that by opting out of SSF fees will result in them not being able to participate in SSF events, or receive SSF services unless they pay a premium fee at the time the event or service is being offered. Fees are listed below.
