The Canadian Student Leadership Association is a federally registered charity in Canada. Founded in 1985 to originally support the continuation of our main event, the Canadian Student Leadership Conference (CSLC), CSLA has since grown, and now distributes leadership resources, materials, scholarships, and organizes programs and events for its member schools across the country.

We support student leaders. We have the resources for advisors.

WHAT WE DO

CSLA provides leadership opportunities, training and resources to student leaders and educators across Canada. Through these activities, we empower students to make change in their communities.
