Beyond the campus, the UWSA communicates with, and advocates on behalf of students to all levels of administration and government. By working together with other students across Canada, through membership in the Canadian Federation of Students, members of the UWSA have an effective voice at the provincial and federal level. The UWSA is committed to working at all levels toward a post-secondary education system that is accessible and of the highest possible quality. In all its activities, the UWSA is committed to providing leadership in environmentally-responsible, ethical, and progressive ways.
