Ottawa urged to offer grants; one-stop shopping for auto investment:

Canada’s auto industry adviser called on the federal and Ontario governments Wednesday to implement measures aimed at changing the “negative” perception of Canada as an expensive place to build vehicles.

“One of the things that I discovered the perception about Canada was very negative; people say ‘Mexico is it; Canada is not,'” Ray Tanguay told reporters on the eve of the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto.

Ontario to offer grants to cover college tuition for low-income students

Ontario to offer grants to cover college tuition for low-income students

Changes in student aid unveiled in the Ontario budget are the most radical shift in decades in how the province delivers loans and grants to college and university students, and show the government wants to get more low-income people into postsecondary education.

The government said in the budget on Thursday that most college students whose family income is less than $50,000 a year will receive grants large enough to cover their whole tuition. Grants for university students, who pay higher tuition, may not offset the entire amount.

Ontario Budget: Liberals Hide Austerity behind “Free Education”

On February 25, the Ontario Liberals unveiled their budget for the 2016-17 fiscal year. The centrepiece of the 346-page document was a pledge to make post-secondary education free for families earning under $50,000 a year. The working poor have cause to celebrate: Premier Kathleen Wynne’s “activist” government seems to be finally living up to its name – but is it really? Or is this budget just another example of “talking left and governing right”?

Free Education?

Under the new Ontario Student Grant (OSG), students from families earning under $50,000 a year will have their tuition made free. In addition, “middle-income” students will also have their tuition costs reduced. The logical question then follows: how is it that a government committed to erasing the deficit has found so much new money for poor students? The answer: they haven’t. The new system of funding will replace the mishmash of tax credits and grants that existed before it. The Wynne government claims the new costs will be "roughly the same" as the $1.3 billion in aid that is being replaced.
