When it came time for me to think about where my life was going, my parents let me know a couple things:
- they made enough money that the Canadian government wouldn't let them off the hook for helping to pay for my education, so student loans were reduced.
- they weren't going to/weren't able to help me with paying for my education anyway.
Consequently I never went to college or university. I've managed all right without any training or degrees, though not as well as I likely would have. I suspect I will never have time/opportunity/money to fix this.
My daughter will be born in late June. What can I do now (in Canada) to make sure she has better opportunities than I did?
