The Black Inter-Professional Student's Association
We are a network of personal and professional support for Black graduate and professional students in Canada.
We're Better Together.
We exist because Black graduate and professional students are underrepresented in many faculties , like medicine, law, social work, and business administration.
We serve as a platform to connect Black students with professionals, employers, aspiring Black undergraduates, and each other.
Our purpose is to support our members and prepare them to excel in their professional careers. Together, we can change the story.

Steps To Success
The road to the professions starts in high school, where students must earn a place in university. BIPSA aims to help more Black highschool students to see themselves as doctors,lawyers, engineers, nurses, and provide them with resources to help them achieve their goals.
Admission into graduate programs requires outstanding grades and extracurricular involvement during undergrad. BIPSA connects current professional students with aspiring undergraduates to share advice and mentorship for success. We also help showcase the many graduate & professional options available to students.
Black representation worsens at each step on the road to becoming a professional. By graduate school, Black students are often a tiny minority in their faculty. BIPSA provides a place for students in different programs to get together and support each other towards success.
Black people are underrepresented in professional fields, but in today's world, there are many black people who are working at the highest levels. BIPSA helps these professionals give back by connecting them with our members to provide advice, mentorship, and valuable contacts.
