  • Education is a right for all Indigenous students. Sign the petition now!

    May 11th, 2016

    From the Canadian Federation of Students:


    After the 2016 Federal Budget, the Canadian Federation of Students broke the news that the budget did not commit to lifting the restrictive 2 per cent funding cap on the Post-Secondary Student Support Program (PSSSP) for Indigenous students nor did it invest an additional $50 million per year as promised by Trudeau. This was neither a mistake nor an oversight by the government. The commitment to increased PSSSP funding was deliberately left out of the federal budget. But it’s not too late! The federal government can still right this wrong and open access to post-secondary education for thousands of Indigenous students at a small cost.

    Join the Federation in calling on the Trudeau Government to immediately invest $50 million in the PSSSP and fully fund all Indigenous learners.

    What you can do to support this campaign:

    1. Learn about post-secondary student support for Indigenous students by reading the Federation’s latest blog post
    2. Sign the online petition
    3. Tweet @JustinTrudeau and @CarolynBennett and tell them to mend their broken promise to Indigenous students
    4. Download and share this image to garner support through your networks
