$1-billion in assistance for high school students applying for university, college or CÉGEP


 

While campaigning in Oakville, ON, on March 29, Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff promised that a Liberal government would establish the Canadian Learning Passport, a $1-billion plan that would provide between $4,000-$6,000 of tax-free federal assistance to every high school student who chooses to go to university, college or CÉGEP. Families would be provided $1,000 per year in non-repayable assistance for four years (with low-income families receiving $1,500 per year) through Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs).

  1. I think you're a week late with this post.

  2. Seriously, give more money to Students that have help from Mom and Dad. What about older workers that need to upgrade, where is the support there? I was richer when I lived at home on Mom and Dad's Dime! Not that students out of high school don't need it, that is not true, it is just that older workers need to know that they had support from the government to transition into a new career!
