Students left without answers as three QC colleges, recruiting firm file for creditor protection

CBC reports that three colleges in Quebec and a recruiting firm owned by the Mastanuono family have filed for creditor protection, leaving students uncertain about their futures. M College, CDE College, CCSQ, and Rising Phoenix International recruiting firm have requested protection. Students are reportedly facing challenges in securing refunds from the colleges, compounding the difficulties many faced with delayed student visas. Most students are from India, and some told CBC that their parents had saved for years in order to send them to school abroad. In a letter to students, CDE President Joseph Mastantuono told students that it is “within your right to withdraw from your college,” but that due to the creditor protection filing, “no refunds of tuition can be processed at this time.” CBC| MSN News (FR) Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
