BURNABY – Simon Fraser Student Society has successfully submitted its 2023 budget recommendations to the B.C. Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services.
Each year, student societies, alongside all British Columbians, are invited to provide written recommendations to the Province to consider for the provincial annual budget. Organizations are asked to focus on three recommendations to provide to the Committee.
Our three recommendations included:
“With each passing year, the cost of being a university student becomes more challenging” said Eshana Baran, SFSS VP External & Community Affairs. “Our 2023 budget recommendations are common sense solutions that have the potential to significantly reduce barriers to accessing post-secondary education, especially for marginalized and equity-seeking communities”, she added.
The SFSS Executive Committee hopes that during a time of economic recovery, coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, the provincial government will take bold action to address student affordability.
