Making Life Easier for Young Canadians

Life is stressful for Canada’s young people, with real challenges around finding work and affordable housing, or paying down student debt adding a lot of financial pressure to our lives. That’s why the Liberal team wants to keep moving forward with important steps to make life better for young Canadians.

Life is already expensive, and while the Conservatives claim they’ll help you get ahead, they instead have a long history of cutting taxes for the wealthy and cutting services that young Canadians rely on.

Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada are fighting to make life more affordable for young Canadians, through more student grants, thousands of good new jobs, and support for students struggling with debt.

Add your name to support building on the progress we’ve made, and to move forward with real action to make life easier for young Canadians like us.
