New group representing graduates demands that NB restore its tuition tax rebate

May 12, 2016

A new group representing New Brunswick’s postsecondary graduates is demanding that the provincial government reinstate its tuition tax rebate. The rebate was recently cut to help pay for NB’s free tuition program for students from families with less than $60 K in income, yet the newly created New Brunswick Graduates Organization says that this transition has left many students “out in the cold.” The group has stated that restoring the tuition tax rebate is one of its goals, yet member Colin Hodd explains that its broader objective is to “create an organization that can centralize and create that voice for grads in New Brunswick.” CBC | NBGO
