There are now 21 student branches across Canada. The StFX student branch is mentored and supported by the Northumberland professional branch. The student branches are required to conduct a minimum of five educational meetings during the school term. The number and type of social meetings is depended on the student executive; however at least one meeting per year must be held with the professional branch.

The student branch meets the third Monday of every month during the F-block time slot (1:15pm) in JBB room 237. Please feel free to contact any name listed above for more information.
