This is Sadie's CSG Story
Sadie is the president of Acadia Students Union, and a part-time student in the Community Development Program. Sadie relies on her work outside of school and Canada Student Grants to get her through her studies.
Since working in student government, Sadie has realized a passion for social activism in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. Law school is her next step, but financial instability and growing debt present barriers to her goals.
Reinvestments in Canada Student Grants are needed to ensure that students across Canada can afford higher education.
Without action, federal grant maximums for students will fall from $6000 to $3000, leaving Sadie anxious about next year’s tuition deadline and the financial instability that the next school year could bring her.
Students across Canada, like Sadie, are worried about being able to afford necessities amid the rising cost of living.
