NBSA applauds changes to provincial SEED program

February 10, 2017

The New Brunswick Student Alliance has issued a statement voicing its support for recent changes made to NB’s Student Employment Experience Development. The organization says that it worked directly with the team responsible for SEED and that nearly all of its recommendations were included in the new changes, which included a draw for student vouchers. “Changes, particularly to the marketing and communication of the voucher program, were necessary and we are delighted that the Department was willing to take student and stakeholder concerns on board and make welcomed improvements,” said NBSA Executive Director Robert Burroughs. “The [NB] Minister’s commitment to keeping SEED a student-focused employment program is also greatly appreciated.” NBSA
