Support Students Parents

A lack of affordable, accessible childcare spaces, coupled with the realities of being a student make participating in post-secondary education increasingly difficult for caregivers. On top of the burden of high tuition fees and student debt, and a job market that continues to be marked by precarious work, the high cost of childcare can drive parents into even greater debt, or force them out of our post-secondary institutions. We need to do more to ensure that all students, including student parents, can actively participate in all levels of post-secondary education.
