Media Advisory - Students to Provide Reaction on Federal Budget

OTTAWA, March 21, 2016 /CNW/ -

Who: Viviane Bartlett, Interim Executive Director and spokesperson of the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations (CASA)

What: Viviane Bartlett will be available for comment on the 2016 Federal Budget and will be in the Railway Room (253-D), Centre Block, Parliament Hill

When: Tuesday, March 22nd 2016, immediately after the budget lock-up

Why: CASA and its members continue to be strong advocates in supporting Indigenous learners, investing in the success and growth of the Canada Student Grant Program, and assisting low-income students and recent graduates through the Repayment Assistance Program.
