I am currently attending School at the Canadian Tourism College in Surrey, BC. I was supposed to be able to stay with some family for the full three months for not charge and paying for my own food. However when I arrived in Langley, BC on July 1st I found out that I could only stay for 3 weeks, which has been extended a few times already, I now either have to pay $100 a week to sleep on a coutch (of which I don't have any money) or I have to live on the street while I complete my schooling and look for a job. I recived $7,000 from the Government for a student loan which covered most of my tuition and about three months of food and transportation only with no account for school supplies, rent, or emergency backup money. I still have $1,250 owing for tuition and have no other money left for food or rent.
I am continuing to look for a job as well as do my schooling. So a quick breakdown. eaither I get some money to help pay for rent and all other priorities, or I'll be living on the street.
