Prime Minister Trudeau: Fulfil Your Promise to Aboriginal Students! 

During the 2015 federal election, the Liberal Party pledged to: “invest $50 million in additional annual funding to the Post-Secondary Student Support Program, which supports Indigenous students attending post-secondary education (PSSSP), ensuring the program will keep up with growing demand.”[1] 

Liberal Inaction on PSSSP Promises

After winning the election, the Liberals introduced their first Federal Budget in 2016 with no mention of the PSSSP and no new funding to address the PSSSP funding shortfall.[2]

Take Action!

Urge the Federal Government to invest $50 million in additional funding to the Post-Secondary Student Support Program to provide meaningful opportunities for Aboriginal students by signing the petition below!
