NS students issue recommendations for 2018 provincial budget

February 9, 2018

StudentsNS has issued a series of recommendations for the 2018 Nova Scotia budget that the organization believes will help students pursue their career of choice and live in their preferred community. The recommendations include a call for the province to re-invest its existing tuition and education tax credits into up-front grants, as well as introduce loan forgiveness for students of Nova Scotia Community College. Further, the document asks the government to follow the examples of other provinces by creating an open education resource project that will drive down the cost of educational materials for students. StudentsNS
