CFS lobbying on Parliament Hill this week

October 21, 2013

The Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) has organized a lobby week at Parliament Hill to “pressure the federal government to take immediate steps to address increasing student debt.” Students are meeting with MPs and Senators this week to advocate for a series of recommendations, which include a proposal to convert all new student loans to grants and investments – a move the CFS says would cut student debt in Canada by half and return federal funding to colleges and universities to 1992 levels.
