Students at Memorial, USherbrooke continue to face housing crunch

Students in Canada continue to face a housing crunch as they search for accommodations for the Fall. In Newfoundland & Labrador, CBC reports that Memorial University students are frustrated by the housing situation. The university residences are already nearing capacity for the Fall and some Memorial students have blamed short-term rental sites like Airbnb and Vrbo for worsening the situation. In Sherbrooke, Quebec, La Tribune reports that nearly a hundred students enrolled at the Université de Sherbrooke are reportedly without a place to live in the region. USherbrooke spokesperson Marc-Antoine Bolduc stated that the institution is doing everything in its power to resolve the situation, and that if the problem is not resolved by the start of the school year, the university will proceed on a case-by-case basis.
