The International Student Identity Card (ISIC) is the only internationally recognized proof of full-time student status, and is a student discount card in 70 countries, including Canada. ISIC cardholders get access to thousands of discounts in Canada and over 40,000 discounts worldwide, including with ViaRail and Porter Airlines.
For Federation members who are SOGS members, the cost of the ISIC card is included with membership. Others must purchase the card for $20.00. The Card is available at most student unions and at all Travel CUTS offices.
If you can’t get to the SOGS office, or you need an ISIC card during a time when the SOGS office DOES NOT issue a ISIC card, please get your virtual ISIC card here. This virtual card is free for SOGS members.
