The Canadian Federation of Students is the organisation of Canada's national student movement. It was formed in 1981 to provide students with an effective, united voice in provincial and federal politics, with origins in predecessor organizations since 1926. There are more than 70 university and college students' associations in Canada that make up the CFS, comprising more than 500,000 students.

The CFS puts emphasis on developing working relationships with the government, researching government proposals, lobbying federal and provincial legislatures, and organizing petition drives and mass mobilisation of students. Goals of the CFS include educating students about their institutions, keeping tuition fees low, and distributing student resources.
