BC NDP has promised to ensure more middle class and low income students can access up to $4,000 a year to assist with paying for tuition and school supplies If re-elected.

“We will continue breaking down barriers for students so they can get access to a college or university education and pursue their dreams,” said BC NDP leader John Horgan.

He also announced his government would create an additional 2,000 spaces at post-secondary institutions across BC for students in technology related programs. Horgan promised the NDP would break down barriers for students and make it easier to access post-secondary education.

“To build a recovery that’s felt by everyone, we will invest in training young people for the opportunities of today and the future,” said Horgan. “These new spaces will give more students the access to the skills needed to succeed in B.C.’s growing tech sector as the economy recovers.”

“John Horgan made the first investment in post-secondary grants in nearly 15 years, after the BC Liberals let tuition fees skyrocket,” said Tesicca Truong, BC NDP candidate in Vancouver-Langara.
