CASA launches “Wall of Debt” campaign

February 26, 2014

The Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA) has launched a “Wall of Debt” campaign to allow students to share their stories and to tell “federal and provincial governments that it’s time to prioritize need-based grants.” The campaign website encourages students to add a “brick” to the “wall of debt,” a graphic that displays each student’s name and total PSE debt amount. CASA has been lobbying the federal government to increase funding to the Canada Student Grants Program, which helps students with the greatest financial needs decrease their debt loads.
