SFUFA is an active member of CAUT, working closely with associations and academic staff unions across the country to coordinate campaigns, share resources and information, and build political and professional ties.

Founded in 1951, CAUT represents more than 66,000 teachers, librarians, researchers and other academic professionals and general staff. The organization is an outspoken defender of academic freedom and works actively in the public interest to improve the quality and accessibility of post-secondary education in Canada, as well as providing a range of services and supports to its member associations and to individual academic staffmembers.
