Fédération des cégeps urges QC to invest $150M in residences, student housing

The Fédération des cégeps is demanding that the Government of Québec allot $150M to student residences and housing in its next provincial budget. Fédération CEO Bernard Tremblay asserted that the accessibility of higher education is at stake and that the cégeps are risking issues with student dropouts. $100M would be devoted to the construction and renovation of student residences, while $50M would support the development of a set of innovative projects to help address short-term needs. The Fédération étudiante collégiale voiced its support of the Fédération des cégeps’ calls for action.
