QC students fear province will “steal” $80M in funding freed up by federal budget

September 8, 2016

Quebec’s postsecondary students are worried that their provincial government will “steal” $80M in new funding generated by the federal government, reports La Presse. The money in question will reportedly be generated when the federal government eliminates tax credits for textbooks and education in January 2017, a shift that will free up an additional $80M in funds for QC. While other provinces have decided to redirect the savings into loans and grants for students, QC Minister of Higher Education Hélène David has reportedly not yet made a decision on the matter.
