I graduated from CDI Community College in 2007, completing the Phlebotomy and Medical Laboratory Technician Course with no job offers in sight, despite taking part in “on the job training”. In 2008, I went on ODSP for Rheumatoid Arthritis and Depression. As I was unable to pay towards my OSAP loan, and with interest accruing annually, the Government seized all of my GST payments, Trillium payments, and refunds in 2011. Even though I am legally disabled and on ODSP, I am being deprived of income that could help feed my family, all because I am unable to pay off my student loan.
