COVID-19 Supports for Students


AUSU is very happy to see that the federal government announced $9 billion for a students aid package to assist post-secondary students impacted by COVID-19, including emergency student aid, an increase in student loans and grants, and more jobs for students, and Indigenous student support.  

AUSU is a is a proud member of the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations, which recently put forward specific asks to the Federal government to provide more funding and support for students, so we are happy to see our asks incorporated into this federal aid package.
