How long do you plan to be paying your student debts?

The Canadian Federation of Students says Canadian students will be meeting members of parliament this week to take action against increasing student debt.

Tuition fees have risen over 200 per cent within the last two decades, which has lead to 455,000 Canadians owing over $15 billion collectively.

Whether it means creating more bursaries or food banks, the goal is to fight Canada’s rising student debt crisis by cutting it in half.
