The Graduate Students Association at the public research university in Saskatoon is debating the issue of an Ombuds. The organization has published a statement of why U of S might want to consider an Ombuds and a list of other Canadian universities with Ombuds or student advocacy offices. In addition, a petition to establish an Ombuds is available for students to sign.
The University of Saskatchewan enrolls about 21,000 students. (U of S GSA Student Advocacy Document, Petition for an Ombudsperson at the U of S.)
