about us



IGNITE is the official student union of Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber, representing and uniting over 30,000 full-time students in one common voice. Run by students, for students, we aim to make your post-secondary experience the best it can be. From your wellness and career success to exciting social events, you can consider us your one-stop shop.

We know that school can be overwhelming but it’s also a pivotal chapter in your life, so let’s make it a good time! At IGNITE, our priority is you – the student. Through our events and the numerous services we offer, we act in your best interest, empowering students to their full potential and building a community in which everyone feels safe and supported.

Who We Are

Let’s face it – the only ones who can truly understand students’ issues are students themselves. That’s why we have Student Advocates to bridge the gap between you and your student union, representing and acting as the voice of their peers to validate your concerns and make you feel heard.
