CCO's Fall 2013 Queen's Park Day

After our highly successful Queen’s Park Day last April, CCO decided to hold another series of meetings this fall. On September 25th, CCO representatives met with 15 MPPs and 5 MPP Staffers from all three provincial political parties.

The primary issues that were discussed during the meetings included the PCC Act Review and the association’s key recommendations and the inequalities faced by Career College students, such as the inability to access the 30% off Tuition Grant and the Second Career funding cap.

CCO representatives were invited to attend Question Period by MPP Garfield Dunlop, Critic for Apprenticeship Reform, and the Honourable Brad Duguid, Minister of Training, Colleges, and Universities acknowledged our representatives in the Gallery.
