International and Canadian Student Network

The International & Canadian Student Network is a Feds student-run service on campus. We strive to make all local, international and exchange students feel welcome here at the University, and in the Waterloo community. To do that, we run a number of events each term so that you can explore the area and make meaningful connections with people from around the world! If you’'re looking to have a great experience at Waterloo, this is the service for you!
