Last month the McGill chapter of CASCO (Commerce and Administration Student Charity Organization) held its annual fundraiser, and raised over $25,000 for the Montreal Children's Hospital. The fashion show and dinner has expanded each year and raised increasingly more money for the hospital. The CASCO fashion show is the most popular and anticipated event of the year at McGill. Since the McGill Chapter was founded, over $82,050 has been raised. Numerous pieces of much-needed equipment have been purchased with the donations.
We are pleased to announce that due to favourable experience, there will be a decrease in rates under the Optional Life Insurance Plan.
We are pleased to advise that the level of reimbursement of tuition fees provided under the Educational Assistance Policy has now increased to 100% for all eligible staff regardless of years of service.
