In March 2018 the Manitoba government announced international students will no longer receive basic public healthcare coverage. A decision made without any meaningful consultation from students or consideration for the $221 million contributions of international students to our economy.
It is unfortunate that the government has once again resorted to cutting support to crucial services that affect the lives of Manitobans while rolling back years of progress in welcoming international students and fails to acknowledge the social, cultural, and economic benefits that they bring to Manitoba. It time for this government to take a step back and reassess the long-term effect of their regressive policies.
Many students will pay $100 to $2,000 or even more on textbooks.
Textbooks shouldn’t be expensive and students shouldn’t be #TextBroke. How much did YOU spend on textbooks?!
We have been pushing back against the regressive policies of the current Manitoba government. We stood in opposition to Bill 31 which allows for substantial tuition increases and deregulates course related fees, the elimination of the tuition rebate and fought for increased funding for institutions. This government and our institutions are slamming the doors to higher learning one tuition increase at a time.
We will continue the fight for #edu4all. Join us to #fightthefees
