CCPA suggests alternative budget for PSE

February 10, 2014

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) has released an alternative federal budget that suggests: reducing the cost of PSE to pre-1992 levels, a PSE cash transfer of $2,875 per full-time student that increases by 2% per year, removing the cap for the Post-Secondary Student Support Program (PSSSP), increasing federal granting agency budgets by 10%, and creating a commission to study and provide policy recommendations on apprenticeships, college education, and skills-based training. The 2014 federal budget will be tabled on February 11. Canada Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said last week that this year’s budget will not be balanced.
