About Us

Who We Are

The British Columbia Institute of Technology Student Association (BCITSA) is a non-profit student services and advocacy organization for the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), the second largest post-secondary institution in British Columbia. A board of directors composed of 11 elected Student Executive members and Student Councilors from each of the different schools of BCIT governs the affairs of the BCITSA.

The BCIT Student Association supports and enhances the quality of student life for over 48,000 BCIT full-time and part-time students across BCIT’s five campuses.

Students lead our organization, and drive strategically what happens. Everything that we do is about increasing the value of the BCIT student experience.

Remember: we work for students, not the institution.


To unite the students of today into a strong and vibrant community while providing them with the best possible services to aid them in their success.


To be an advocate for students and provide services which are student-centered, responsive and pro-active in supporting and enhancing the quality of student life.
