I graduated in 2009 and I have OSAP debt of around $45k. I keep applying for repayment assistance but no one should have to endure this stress year after year. We have been promised that "higher education" will guarantee us careers but here I am, hopping around from contract to contract. I not only have to endure the stress of paying off this debt -- which has affected my mental health -- but I experience greater stress of trying to kick-start my career. I am 30 years of age - educated, willing and read to work.
