Ministry of training colleges and universities
August 26th, 2014 by Questions
Ministry of training colleges and universities – I have separated since Nov 1/12, with no separation agreement in place, we sold our home and I paid some debt as well as lawyer fees. I own a business with my ex which I have not seen any money from dividends. He was to buy me out and since has decided to close it down which may leave me with even more debt. I have been laid off and am receiving EI.
I have applied and been accepted for the second career program and will be attending college in Sept. The living allowance I will receive once EI runs out (Nov 7/14) will only cover my rent, utilities, internet and food) I can work part time to a maximum of 20 hrs per week as long as it does not affect my grades. I do not think it will be enough to continue to pay my debts. I receive this funding while I attend school. Therefore from April to Sept, I will hopefully be able to find temporary employment that will pay enough to pay my living expenses (rent, utilities, food) and will reapply to attend the second year of my program.
I am an older adult and am unsure of what to do. Please provide me with advice.
With all that said, I am unsure if this will affect my opportunity to participate in the Second Careers program which would leave me at an even greater loss…..what to do?
