Students are asking for: 1) The regulation, immediate freeze, and progressive elimination of tuition fees, increases to public funding and increased accountability for universities. 2) Create a 100% needs-based grants based student assistance system. 3) Introduce provincial legislation to combat sexualized violence on campus. 4) Medical Services Insurance for international students immediately upon arrival in Nova Scotia. 5) Banning the use of unpaid internships within the provincial government and the elimination of the inexperienced minimum wage. We look forward to working with decision makers to address the current state of post-secondary education in Nova Scotia. #cfsfcee #nspse #cdnpse

Did you know that the majority of Nova Scotian’s are in favour of the reduction of tuition fees? Students are calling on the provincial government to invest in post-secondary institutions and immediately regulate and reduce tuition fees.

Sexualized violence is a barrier to accessing post-secondary education.

Unfortunately, our institutions continue to fail to provide adequate policies, supports, and accomodations for survivors.

Nova Scotian’s are overwhelmingly in favor of better supports for survivors on campus. Full results of public opinion polling can be found at cfs-ns.ca/polling.
