Mutual Aid Fund

The AGSEM Mutual Aid Fund was established at a General Assembly on 24 October 2018 to provide financial aid to members of AGSEM as well as members of the wider McGill or academic community. The fund is intended for solidarity initiatives including, but not limited to: strike support, legal support, general financial hardship resulting from precarity, inequality, and/or institutional austerity, community childcare or other family care, healthcare, counseling and other mental health care related to trauma, abuse, and/or sexual violence.

Association of Graduate Students Employed at McGill

The Association of Graduate Students Employed at McGill (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. Course lecturers have since separated into the McGill Course Lecturers and Instructors Union (MCLIU).
