AFSA’s emphasis is always on bringing added value to your firm. We try to integrate your organization with our events and services, regardless of whether you are providing financial sponsorship or sponsorship of some other kind (such as providing speakers, physical space to host events / services, or sponsoring prizes). We are also happy to accept general sponsorship of our entire organization, but we are careful with such sponsorship arrangements as we want to ensure that we provide maximal value back to your firm.

Sponsors get showcased on the website, which receives over 2300 unique visitors each week from all across Canada. You will also have the opportunity to reach our 2600 students using the UWAFSA Facebook page (, as well as spreading your message via the UWAFSA Twitter profile (

Our Sponsors

AFSA is a proud member of the Canadian Association of Business Students (CABS). CABS brings together commerce societies similar to AFSA from universities across Canada and oversees the execution of multiple conferences which AFSA and our SAF students are stakeholders and participants in. AFSA has leveraged its CABS membership to learn about best practices from other members schools, which has led to the work on AFSA's Goes for Gold conference program, AFSA's potential commerce levy, and AFSA's potential standing as a student society within FEDS. AFSA has been a member since Spring term of 2013.
