CMSF & YMCA launch PSE Access Partnership

December 13, 2007

The Canada Millennium Scholarship Foundation and the YMCA have announced a joint project that promises to "tap the potential of all Canadians" by increasing PSE participation from Aboriginal, first-generation and low-income learner groups.  The Post-Secondary Access Partnership will provide information and one-on-one advising to students and their families from these non-traditional groups, with the message that PSE is not only "desirable" but also "viable."  40% of young Canadians do not finish high school, do not go on to PSE, or do not complete their PSE programs.
