Our local MPP is welcoming new changes to OSAP, but says the whole system is still a problem. Laurie Scott says accessibility to post-secondary education, and affordability is an issue that’s getting worse.

Scott says there’s a sense of lost hope with young people today when it comes to getting a job and being independent.

The province says the new changes include setting a fixed student contribution of $3,000, and increasing the amount students get per week.
