It’s a match made in political heaven. Last week CUP announced its brand new partnership with iPolitics, an Ottawa-based publication specializing in coverage of the Hill. We couldn’t be more excited about this opportunity, here’s what it means to CUP members (and how to use it).

You get a free subscription to iPolitics. To subscribe to iPolitics, go to this page and select the “Student Subscription” option. Once you fill out all the information, use the promotional code STU1415 to grab the subscription for free. We also highly recommend subscribing to the morning and evening email briefs for daily news summaries.

CUP members can republish iPolitics content. Itching to get the latest Ottawa scandal in the hands of your readers? iPolitics has allowed CUP members to reprint any of its original content. This does not include any content published on iPolitics through outside sources like Canadian Press and the Washington Post.

CUPpies can get mentored by iPolitics staff. If you’re dreaming of breaking the next Duffygate but have no idea where to get started, iPolitics is a good place. CUP and iPolitics can set you up with a mentor who will show you the ropes of covering the Hill. To take advantage of this opportunity, email Jane at
