Dedicated Fee Groups at SFU are the student-led non-profit societies on campus which rely on the GSS and SFSS to collect their fees. These fees come to the GSS and then are remitted directly to the respective organizations.
These fees were passed by a referendum of GSS members in 2007. A referendum was conducted in the Spring 2020 adjusting the SFPIRG and WUSC fees.
