Canada Student Loans

Canada Student Loans Go ZERO INTEREST!

Sometimes, change seems to take forever when suddenly, bang!

After several decades of debate, the interest charges on both Canada Student Loans and Canada Apprentice Loans were effectively ended yesterday (November 3, 2022). 

Canada had a Covid-pandemic pause on student loan interest charges that was set to last through March, 2023. The new zero-interest policy takes effect starting April, 2023, replacing the Covid pause.

Podcast: Me 'n' My University Money

I've meant to do podcasts for years and since I used to work in radio, it sounds easy.

You just get out the audio gear and edit a few talks about how to pay off all this student debt you've got. Or, better yet, how you can avoid this mess in the first place. 

But there are never enough hours in my day. Argh, neverrr!!!
