The Canadian government announced a $500 million fund to expand mental health resources for young people. The initiative will provide greater access to community-based mental health care.

Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland revealed the investment, fulfilling a Liberal Party campaign promise to bolster mental health support in post-secondary institutions. This move signals a broader focus on youth well-being ahead of the federal budget slated for April 16th.

In Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s words, the budget will prioritize young Canadians, including addressing the significant challenge of affordable housing.
