Kahnawà:ke Education Center (KEC) (Kahnawà:ke, Quebec – 21 Seskehkó:wa/September 2020) - The Kahnawà:ke Education Center and the Kahnawà:ke Combined Schools Committee are pleased to inform our Post-Secondary students, as well as the community of Kahnawà:ke, that we are increasing our monthly student living allowance rates effective September 25th, 2020.  As per KEC Post-Secondary Student Support Program (PSSSP) Policy, full-time students who carry a course load of 4 courses or more at both the CEGEP and University levels are eligible to receive monthly living allowances.  Currently, the rates for student living allowances are as shown in the table below. These rates remained stagnant for several years.  A recent re-evaluation of the KEC PSSSP Policy led to an analysis of the monthly student living allowance rates.  In order to better support our Post-Secondary students, the rates will increase in accordance with the table below.

For the September 25th cheque, students will receive their increased monthly rate, as well as a retroactive increase for August-September.  Allowances will continue after this period at the new rates outlined in the table below.
