About Us

The Faculty of Community Services Society is the elected student society government that is building a community for over 6,000+ undergraduate students in the Faculty of Community Services (FCS) at Toronto Metropolitan University. Our mission is to unify students together within the nine schools at the Faculty of Community Services, enabling them to be heard as one unified voice. We center our initiatives around the four pillars of unity, mental health, professional development, and academic advocacy.

The Faculty of Community Services Society (FCSS) was recognized by Toronto Met in 2017. The FCSS passed its 2022-23 fall referendum securing the student government in its future funding opportunities for students in FCS.

We are a student society of dedicated elected student leaders from across all 8 full-time undergraduate schools in the Faculty of Community Services (FCS). We are the collegiate umbrella organization for FCS. We are student led, and democratically elected to ensure the future of student life within FCS remains a unified, connected, and strong community for generations to come.

The FCSS was first envisioned by students in FCS in 2011. The first steering committee of the modern day FCSS was formed on January 24th, 2014. The FCSS has taken on a number of different names over the span of the last decade but has returned to the roots of its original name. Former names include:
