| Current Toronto Time: 
57 per cent of Canadian students say they plan to work while studying

An RBC/Ipsos Reid Poll found that the majority of post-secondary students (57 per cent) say they plan to work during the school year in order to help pay the bills.

However, 77 per cent believe working part-time during school will impact their grades, while six in 10 expect to graduate with debt and 74 per cent don’t use a budget. Debt after graduation is no longer just a possibility, but a harsh reality for many students.

Some interesting findings include:

• 66 per cent of students feel that worrying about money will have an impact on their grades.

• 59 per cent of students who are already planning to work would consider looking for more hours or another job if money was tight.
