Free Tuition Is The Only Way To Save Students From This Pandemic

Federal Canadian student loans resumed repayment and started collecting interest again in October 2020 after being paused on March 30. In response, the British Columbia Federation of Students (BCFS), which represents more than 170,000 students across the province, started a petition asking the federal government to stop collecting interest on student loans altogether, calling it a “tax on low- and middle-income students and families.”
