AB students struggle financially amid cost-of-living crisis


Postsecondary students from across Alberta have expressed that they are struggling financially amid the rising cost of living. According to Chris Beasley, chair of the Council of Alberta University Students, many students have been forced to reduce their food options to make ends meet this year. Erin O’Neil, Executive Director of Campus Food Bank at the University of Alberta, echoed this sentiment, detailing that the organization has had to significantly increase the amount of food they provide to students in recent months. A statement from the Government of Alberta indicated that the province has increased its student supports in response to this crisis and encouraged students to apply for available scholarships and bursaries.
