NV to investigate after students experience delays in FANS funding

Government of Nunavut Education Minister Pamela Gross says that her department will be investigating after Nunavut students experienced late payments from Financial Assistance for Nunavut Students (FANS), reports CBC. Seven students have reportedly not received their funding, which led to difficulties such as food insecurity and inability to pay rent. Additionally, CBC says that some students say they are at risk of being removed from their programs because they cannot pay their fees, and that the students have been additionally stressed by a lack of sufficient updates from the FANS program. Gross had reportedly previously denied that FANS was not up to date on payments, but apologized for the delays on Thursday, promised to investigate the issue, and requested that affected students contact her office.
