Let’s Get Consensual

Fight For $15

Many students earn wages that put them below the poverty line, and even more consider their low wages and high tuition fees as a barrier to attending college. This Campaign supports the right for workers to make a fair a decent wage. We support this campaign as Coalition partners with the British Columbia Federation of Labour. Visit the campaign website at fightfor15bc.ca for more information, or you can look up “Fight For $15 BC” on Facebook: facebook.com/fightfor15bc

Squash the Squeeze

This campaign was created by BC students to fight barriers faced by BC students. The campaign asks the provincial government directly to Squash the Squeeze on BC Students by;
– Eliminating Interest on Student Loans
– Restoring the Needs Based Grants Program
– Decreasing Tuition Fees
– Increasing Funding to public post-secondary institutions
Together, these four asks would solve many of the problems faced today – skyrocketing student debt, massively underfunded Post-Secondary Institutions, and financial barriers to students attending post-secondary school. Visit squashthesqueeze.ca to learn more and to sign the petition.
