OTTAWA, March 19, 2019 - The federal government released its 2019 budget today, where they announced exciting investments that the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA) and the Quebec Student Union (QSU) believe will improve the lives of post-secondary students across the country. Such investments include renewed funding to support Indigenous students, work-integrated learning opportunities for students, improved repayment terms for student loans, new student research scholarships, and financial support for students with disabilities.
OTTAWA, January 30, 2019 – Students across the country are kicking off the Canadian Alliance of Students Associations’ (CASA) #StudentsLetsAct campaign today, underlining the urgent need for action on student mental health. At a time where attention to and discussion around mental health is high, students want to channel this energy into tangible action to help support those struggling.
OTTAWA, January 21, 2019 – The Government of Ontario recently announced changes to post-secondary education in the province that have serious ramifications for students. Veiled behind the announcement of a 10% tuition fee reduction, the province has also cut grants for low-income students, eliminated the 6-month grace period on loans, cut post-secondary institution funding, and altered campus student life as we know it.
Educational Materials are an integral part of the academic experience and are necessary tools to train and educate the next generation. When considering the scope of educational materials, it can be easy to think about textbooks and textbooks only. For the purposes of this paper, educational materials encompass a wide array of books, articles, texts, audio-visual materials, course packs, and other teaching and learning tools that instructors and students draw on to advance their knowledge in a given field of study. In the 21st century classroom, educational materials can take entirely new forms. There is no post-secondary student in Canada in any program, whether at a college, university, or polytechnic, whose education is not impacted by decisions around educational material availability, cost, and format.
