General Assembly

Winter 2020 General Assembly has been CANCELLED due to the COVID-19 situation.

Winter 2020 General Assembly

The Medical Students’ Society of McGill University (MSS) will be hosting its Winter 2020 General Assembly (GA) on Thursday, April 2nd, 2020 at 7:00pm, location TBA. Dinner will not be served but prizes will be won! More information to follow, so keep an eye out!

Article 4.1.2 of the MSS Constitution states: “The General Assembly shall have full authority over the Society. The General Council and Class Councils are bound by all decisions made by a General Assembly.”

The GA is a great opportunity for students to (1) bring forward topics for discussion, to (2) formulate stances taken by the MSS, and to (3) outline actions mandated by the student body to the MSS council.

We are accepting motions from the general student body through the following form: Motion Submission Form, or by emailing them directly to Yseult Gibert.

If you don’t know how to write a motion, you can follow the instructions to do so here. Andre Lametti, our Senator, created a Sample Motion for reference. You can always contact both Yseult or Élise, GAAC officer, for any questions about the process.

We will be accepting submissions until Saturday, March 28th 7PM. The agenda will be sent out on Thursday, March 26th.

For your reference, please see the MSS Constitution here, as well as the Agenda and Minutes from previous General Assemblies in the tabs below. As well, here are our Standing Rules to give a brief overview of the proceedings of the Assembly, and to explain the basics of how it works! More in-depth information can be found within our Internal Regulations, or by consulting the most recent edition of Robert’s Rules of Order.

Please fill out this Google FORM to confirm your attendance so we can arrange for your meal (Deadline:  Monday, March 30th 11:59PM), and follow along by pressing going on the Facebook Event to stay up-to-date with the latest information!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Yseult Gibert at

Once again, we’ll be allowing students with mandatory, scheduled clinical activities to proxy their vote. Anyone who is interested in a proxy vote is invited to read through the entirety of the agreement, and to reach out to Yseult Gibert directly if they have any further questions with regards to who is eligible to proxy their vote. All submissions are subject to review, and will be confirmed shortly after submission. Proxy forms will be accepted until Wednesday, April 1st at 11:59PM.
