Support our Students
It’s time to abolish tuition!
High university and post-secondary fees burden students with crippling debt and deny countless Canadians access to the full range of educational opportunities they deserve.
Costly tuition widens Canada’s wealth gap, causing cyclical poverty and promoting a system in which only the wealthy can pursue higher education with ease.
Given Canada’s ample resources, this setup not only is unfair and undemocratic, it’s unwise.
Education is a public good. Our future depends on a capable, creative and knowledgeable workforce, and that means everyone must have access to post-secondary education, regardless of status.
We must protect and future our students, not punish them with lifelong debt.
Frankly, we can’t afford to limit our choices when it comes to the next generation of leaders. If we’re going to solve the global environmental crisis, encourage genuine grassroots change and foster Green Innovation, we’ll need to train and educate all the exceptional young Canadians we can.
Free tuition isn’t radical, it’s sensible!
That’s why Green MPs will work with the provinces to:
Fight for free university and post-secondary tuition
Adopt student debt cancellation for existing student debt exceeding $10,000.00
Institute a Community and Environment Service Corps to support youth employment and research and development in crucial Canadian sectors
Eliminate the Canada Student Loans Program In-Study Assessment
Extend grant availability to graduate and doctoral students
