Students look for budget to deliver on accessibility, affordability and skills training



    TORONTO, March 24 /CNW/ - With current labour shortages being felt across
the province in all sectors and a projected shortfall of 364,000 by 2025 the
government can not ignore this looming skilled labour crisis; action is
required immediately, says the College Student Alliance (CSA).
    "Like many Ontarians, students and our institutions are struggling to
make ends meet," says Tyler Wiles, President of the College Student Alliance.
"This government has shown signs that they truly recognize and understand the
challenges facing our students with their actions in the past, but the work is
far from complete. Tomorrow's budget can and must move Ontario forward on
these issues."
    Students will be available for comments after Minister of Finance, Dwight
Duncan, releases the government's post-election budget on Tuesday, March 25th,
2008.

    The College Student Alliance (CSA) is an advocacy and services
organization which has been proudly serving Ontario's college and
college/university students since 1975. The CSA currently represents 16
colleges and 23 student councils with over 109,000 full-time student members
throughout the province.
