Liberal Party Of Canada
We as exceptional members of the Liberal Party of Canada believe in the fundamental rights and freedoms of all people. We work towards a well structured, lean and flexible government that minimizes daily interference in the lives of citizens. We believe in a government that nurtures and influences its citizens through incentive, rather than setting limits on people. To summarize our belief in two words, we would say liberty and equality.
Due to the increase in Post-Secondary education, many Canadians are finding it hard to afford this higher level of education. Middle-class families are finding it tough to save money for their kids’ education, while lower class families are not able to save any money for Post-Secondary education let alone a little. We will increase the maximum amount of loan money for low-income families to $3,000 per year for full-time student and $1,800 per year for part-time students. In order for more middle-class families to gain access to Canada Student Grant, the income limit increase is going to be helpful. The non-repayable grant assistance to students is estimated to grow by $100 million by 2019/20. The graduate students will only have to start repaying the loan once they start earning more than $25,000 per year. We are going to invest an additional $50 million to support Post-Secondary education for indigenous students. To make education affordable and accessible for low-income families earning less than $50, 000, we will give them direct funding and free tuition. We want to help the youth of this country to get the best quality education at minimal to no cost.
We, as members of one of the most influential parties in Canada, value and prioritize immigration. We believe our future success is largely dependent on the attraction of talented people from around the world. Not only does diversity provide our nation with both economic and social benefits, it is also significantly crucial for our long-term success and economic growth. Canada’s diversity and connections are our most significant aspects when it comes to the growing inter-globular community. We encourage and support people who are looking to take a step forward and immigrate to Canada. Thus far, we have assisted over 25,000 Syrian Refugees and are looking to enhance that number further as we gain your help and trust. Our mindset is to simply restore the Interim Federal Health Program that provides limited and temporary health benefits to refugees. We have also decided upon the investment of nearly $200 million over the course of this year and the next to increase refugee processing, as well as sponsorship and settlement services capacity in Canada. We are looking into doubling the budget for family class immigration budget and doubling the number of new applicants each year. With your help, our hopes are to make newcomers feel approached and welcomed by your kind and warms hearts.
Raising The Middle Class
Greener Community Platform
We do not believe in ignoring challenges and acting like they do not exist. By making new investments into green fundamental facilities we will be safeguarding our communities from the dangers of climate change while also growing our economy at the same time.
This investment includes local water and wastewater facilities, clean energy, climate resilient infrastructure including flood mitigation systems, and infrastructure to protect against changing weather.
This investment in green fundamental facilities is a $6 billion dollar increase than what we currently have, over the course of the next four years, and $20 billion by ten years.
