The PGSS is the political representative body for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows at McGill University. The PGSS coordinates representation at the university level, and provincially on issues affecting McGill graduate students and post-docs.

Through the PGSS Council, the highest governing body of the PGSS, representation throughout the McGill governing structures is organized. The PGSS is a non-proft corporation constituted under Part III of the Quebec Companies Act, with all graduate students and post-doctoral fellows at McGill University as its members.

We are here to support you throughout your academic work at McGill and to serve as a resource if you ever need help dealing with the University or life in Montreal. We advocate for our members in meetings with the University and work with external groups to improve student life. In addition, we provide a social activities for our members via the restaurant and bar which we operate at Thomson House (3650 McTavish), trips we organize to other cities, and events we host at and around McGill. The PGSS always wants to hear from our members and are very open to your ideas about how we can do better. Please visit Thomson House, join your departmental association, come to our council and general meetings, participate in our events, visit our website, or e-mail a member of the executive team if you have any questions or new ideas. We hope your stay at McGill is an enjoyable one and look forward to hearing from you!
