No, but possibly with submission from the individual (for low income Canadian citizens only) for a case to forgive debt based on specific circumstances.

Yes, but only if they aren't pursuing a pseudoscience degree like gender studies.

I think we need to rethink the education system since degrees are no longer resulting in high paying jobs to support family and then cover student debts. It’s a much larger problem that will continue to happen.. if we forgive debts we will continually have to do this.. might as well reduce education fees.

@98QDB7P answered…2wks

Yes, but reform the system to an income sharing program similar to the one in Australia

@98Q4NCGfrom Ontario  answered…2wks

Yes, but only for Canadian citizens, students with good grades, and low income students

@98P6WJWfrom Ontario  answered…3wks

Higher education should be free, like in many other high-income countries.

@98LVHLYGreenfrom Ontario  answered…3wks

Depends on the amount of tuition paid... tax break or loan break of 15-20% of the loan taken out would be better because then there's still income coming in from the loans but the students have some reprive.

@98K9W9Jfrom Saskatchewan  answered…4wks

yes forgive up $20000 of student lone debt if they are working if they aren't then keep the student loan

@98K7VWHfrom Alberta  answered…4wks

No, because I do not believe this would be a wise financial decision for the government, but as a student, yes.

@98HTVSQfrom Ontario  answered…4wks

Higher education is over priced period for what you receive on investment

@98GW3CDfrom Ontario  answered…1mo

Yes but only for Canadian citizens who complete a program/degree.

@98G33MBfrom Ontario  answered…1mo

@98FSLRQfrom Ontario  answered…1mo

Only as a one time item in this inflationary period. Afterward lower interest rates.

@98FPFSYLiberalfrom British Columbia  answered…1mo

I think it should be considered. But have a long term plan to reform the system that's in place, with zero interest rates, as well as a pause on it for other things (income brackets) which has been put in place by the Liberal government.

@98FDDWQfrom Alberta  answered…1mo

Higher education should not be limited by socioeconomic backgrounds. Instead of giving out student loans, money should be spent on education so that it is accessible to all.

@98F9V89from Ontario  answered…1mo

@98F8C34Liberalfrom Ontario  answered…1mo

for students on financial aid, and people who are past like 40,000 in students debt

@98DHJQ4from Ontario  answered…2mos

@98CRZ9Tfrom Saskatchewan  answered…2mos

Yes but they pay it in taxes but for longer then just paying it off

@98B6SV5from Quebec  answered…2mos

No, education should be financed by the government, loan dept should be only pay when students fail to complete their education or quit and don't obtain their diploma.

@97ZVYJ4from Ontario  answered…2mos

@97ZF849from Manitoba  answered…2mos

No but create a fully paid higher education program and expenses for trade training (Journeyman 1) or bachelor of whatever is in demand and more funding for those higher end jobs like doctors, Scientists etc for those who served in the military and sign a 5 year National Guard type reserves corps. . That's how you get recruits.

@97YV49Cfrom Ontario  answered…2mos

I think the government shouldn't dismiss and forgive the whole loan but rather cut down the cost

@97YLGXDfrom Saskatchewan  answered…2mos

they should cover every university class for freeeeeee like finland.

@97TYDMGfrom Alberta  answered…3mos

No, but reduce interest rates for "less fortunate" and/or financially struggling students

@97T4JZCConservativefrom Ontario  answered…3mos

Normally, yes for low income students, but we can't afford it right now or for Canadian citizens only

@97SL85NLiberalfrom Nova Scotia  answered…3mos

Yes, but for people with low income, family members who can't afford to pay it all back, etc.
