"It's prudent financial advice to accumulate an emergency savings fund that can last for a few months if necessary."

Stop buying all that BS you don't need or can't afford and you will not cry to Govt anytime you have no salary for 2-3 months ;)

It amazes me how many claim they will be "bankrupt" if they have no salary for a few months ...

Just said that because my PARE test was originally due in March (to be considered for summer/spring intake) it has been extended until May since most places holding the tests are closing.

What a stupid, tone-deaf statement to make in the midst of a global pandemic.

I can, however, see why it amazes you; how are things in your gated community where you live in the house gifted to you by your rich relatives? Or is that a supposition I am making based off of zero knowledge and understanding of your situation?

Weird.
I can only assume from your comment that you have stocked up well on toilet paper

Just said that because my PARE test was originally due in March (to be considered for summer/spring intake) it has been extended until May since most places holding the tests are closing.
Did they at least give you until the end of May? I'm glad to hear they're at least starting to make accommodations either way.

Definitely a good sign, CBSA can also just request a PARE to be done only once during application and then make passing it in training a condition to graduate from Rigaud.
