International Student Identity Card (ISIC)
The International Student Identity Card or ISIC is the only internationally recognized proof of full-time student status, and is a student discount card in 70 countries, including Canada. Through its affiliation with the International Student Travel Confederation, CFS is the sole issuing authority of the ISIC card in Canada.
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.
The ISIC is required for student discounts on domestic air travel. The card may* also make you eligible for a discount on Via Rail travel. In addition, reduced rates can be obtained for accommodations; admission to some of the world's most renowned museums, historical sights and entertainment attractions. To obtain your ISIC and a booklet outlining all of the discounts available in both Canada and abroad, bring both a passport size photo and your student card to the SOGS office.
* Please note: The Canadian Federation of Students is currently petitioning VIA Rail to reinstate travel discounts for ISIC holders. Please check with the CFS before making any travel arrangements.
