This is Ashley's CSG Story
Ashley is the Vice President External of the University of the Fraser Valley Student Union Society and she’s working towards her BA in Economics and a certificate in French.
Ashley wants to become an agent for positive change and has considered working in the federal government or going to law school after she graduates to help others.
To fund the post-secondary education required to reach her goals, Ashley has received Canada Student Grants, worked full-time in student government, and even had additional part-time work to further supplement her income.
With the stress of school and work, Ashley is concerned about COVID-19 increases in Canada Student Grants ending, meaning federal grant maximums for students will fall from $6000 to $3000.
Students across Canada, like Ashley, are worried about being able to afford necessities amid the rising cost of living in British Columbia.
