The McGill Additive Manufacturing Student Society is a student club at McGill that provides services related to 3D printing. They host 3D printing seminars, events and services if students wish to use the printers. For example, last year they hosted talks on the future of technology, 3D modeling workshops using SolidWorks, and 3D printing in Architecture. This is an excellent organization to contact with queries about how to use 3D printing technology or if you need to use a 3D printer.

Check them out to get started creating your own 3D models or modifying existing ones:
Tinkercad - A simple web-based 3D modeling platform
SketchUp - Another simple CAD modeling software
Blender - Used more for animation but exports to 3D printable formats too
AutoCAD - Used a lot in architecture specifically, students can get a free Autodesk account
OnShape - Good free online CAD software, for more advanced users
