WHEREAS Canada’s economy of the future needs highly educated and skilled individuals to remain competitive on a global scale;
WHEREAS students need greater financial support to complete increasingly expensive programs;
WHEREAS there is a need for increased incentives for students to apply their education to the Canadian workforce;
BE IT RESOLVED that the Liberal Party of Canada urges the government of Canada to offer current and future students opportunities to access education at any point in their career, including trades; payment of first and last year tuition for undergraduates; and a work forgiveness program which would allow students to pay off their loans in exchange for work in designated communities, industries, and public initiatives.
