She sounds horrific. Does he have any insight at all into the situation? Has he had any previous relationships?

Well if she’s becoming an American citizen or getting a visa, since she will be in the US for a while to go to school, she won’t be getting any money at all from the Canadian government, plus if she goes to school in the US she won’t be getting it paid for at all. I am sorry but your friend needs to wake up sooner rather then later, not sure how you are going to get him to see how much of a leech she is.

Plus the Canadian government does not pay for the education of its citizens.

@MariContrary:  Maybe Joe will wake up soon?

 

Also… I’ve lived in Canada for most of my life… I’m a citizen… went to school here, and no, we don’t pay for education for our citizens. Many people qualify for a government loan… but higher education isn’t free here. Even if she is claiming some disability, I doubt she would be getting free education.

@MariContrary:  I’m Canadian and I can tell you the government does not pay for your education.  They cover the costs for elementary and high school completely, our colleges and universities are partly funded which means that the average college tuition is about $5000 a year and average university is about $8500, there are some variations between provinces.

If you really think she’s living off the system and shouldn’t be you can report her.  I know in Canada if someones on disability who shouldn’t be we have a tip line that people can call into without leaving their name and provide the details.

@MariContrary:  WOW! She sounds like a piece of work!! Canada is a fabulous country but they do make it very easy for people to leech of the system unfortunately. Also Canada does not pay for any type of post-secondary education for it’s citizens…if they did I would be a doctor right now!

Canada has lots of resouces to report people you think are taking advatage of social assistance programs of any kind – just depends on what provience she is from who you have to call.  

 

Canadian education is not free…I just paid close to $3500 for my fall term, not including books.  I hope you are able to find a number to report her, it really fustrates me when people take advantage of the system!!

Also, if she plans to go to school in the USA and is a Canadian citizen she will be paying so much more, and the government does not assist with that! 

Good luck with your friend!

@MariContrary:  Hmmm, interesting psychodynamics. It’s such a tricky situation – if he’s cast himself in that role, chances are he’ll defend her to the last if you bring anything up. Very frustrating for you! The only advice I can offer is to say very little overtly and to be there for him throughout given that it will inevitably end in tears. If he perceives you as criticising her now, he may push you away. 

 

Ughhhhh, people like that drive me insane!

@MariContrary: I laughed out loud at the “Canada, take her back!” Ummm, I think we’re full up with crazy cat ladies, but thanks 😉 Why would he want to move in with 6 cats??

In all seriousness, please report her. The memory of paying my taxes is all too fresh. I have no problem knowing that there are people who need assistance and that is where some of our taxes go, but if they’re lying and messing with the system, it needs to stop. As Southernpecan said, there are people out there who actually need that money and aren’t getting it because of thieves like her.
