WHO WE ARE.
FUSE Society is a federally registered, youth-led non-profit that exists to bridge the gap between academia and the real world. Founded in 2016 by two Vancouver high-school students, FUSE promotes business literacy by distributing free, case-based learning tools to high school business classes. We are an organization that branches across 3 provinces: Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario. Boasting members from over 15 schools, we have engaged over 400 students to date at our case competitions and events and are rapidly expanding.
