One of the ways Momentum works to improve the lives of those living with economic barriers is through our Research and Policy Department. Our research and policy staff are dedicated to improving systemic policies for the benefit of those who would otherwise be left behind. And we often need voices like yours to strengthen our cases for valuable, lasting change.
How can you help?
Share Your High Interest Loan Experience
Do you have experience with a high interest rate loan (such as an installment loan, title loan, car loan)? Would you be willing to share your story with us and the media?
We’re advocating to lower the allowable interest rate in Canada, and we hope your personal story can help convince policy makers. Please contact us if you’re able and willing to share.
Do You Have Experience with a Private Career College?
There are many responsible and reputable private career colleges that fill an important niche in the adult education and training ecosystem. However, others engage in problematic practices that put students at risk of serious financial strain.
Momentum is working to put forward recommendations that address consumer protection issues that currently exist for prospective students. If you’ve had an experience with a private career college that you’d like to share,
we would love to hear it.
What’s Next for Momentum?
As Momentum considers possibilities for the future, we are reaching out to gather perspectives from the community. Whether you’re a past or present participant, an employer partner, a donor, a staff member, or anyone within our broader stakeholder community, we want to hear from you!
What should we absolutely continue doing? What needs to change? Who should we work with? Our engagement survey is now open. All of Momentum’s stakeholders are asked to contribute your voice and tell us what you think.
Your input will help guide our work moving forward.
This survey closes October 31, please share your thoughts!
