The Government of Canada currently provides financial support to status First Nations and Inuit students through the Post-Secondary Student Support Program (PSSSP). Funding increases for this program were capped at two per cent in 1996, and this cap has been maintained ever since.  

Trudeau promised to lift the cap but there was no mention of PSSSP in the 2016 budget. The Canadian Federation of Students is demanding that the program receive an immediate $50 million in funding.  Sign the petition.

On June 3, Trudeau will be answering questions on the APTN network.  Make sure he is asked about PSSSP by clicking here.
