NB Student Alliance urges province to address highest student debt in Canada

July 17, 2015

The New Brunswick Student Alliance (NBSA) is urging its province to take action after a new map ranked NB highest in Canada for student debt levels and second highest for university tuition. NBSA Executive Director Lindsay Handren said the map shows that NB students graduating with debt owe an average of $35,200, while the national average is $22,300. NB’s Post-Secondary Education Minister Francine Landry said the government has introduced a tuition freeze for universities and has made a priority of bringing stability to planning for education.
