With the end of the holidays, hundreds of international university students will have arrived in Ottawa to start their winter semester.
For these students, this means quickly dropping hundreds of dollars on necessities for life in frigid Canada: pots, plates, parkas, and duvets. And in Ottawa, it doesn’t come cheap.
To help, the University of Ottawa has opened a new store on campus to jump start students lives. The best part? It’s all free.
