Increases to the Out-of-Province Student Tuition Fees
Last Thursday, McGill announced an update on the impact of tuition measures affecting university enrollment and finances. The suggested measures, needed to protect McGill’s financial stability, include a hiring freeze, and job reductions.However, Premier François Legault has said he is still open to talking with the Rectors of Quebec’s three anglophone universities to discuss his government’s decision to increase tuition for out-of-province students and the effects it will have on these institutions.
The students themselves organized, and held a demonstration last Monday against the changes, and another, larger, demonstration is planned for later this month.
There is also a petition asking for the cancellation of the tuition fee increase for students from outside of Quebec..
We encourage you to sign the petition against the tuition fee increases.
