Students in Ontario will save 10 per cent on University and College tuition starting next year

The Ontario government intends to slash university and college tuition fees by 10 per cent starting in the 2019/2020 school year, with fees frozen for the 2020/2021 school year.

According to the government, this means that university students will be expected to save $660 on average every year, and college students will save $340 respectively. Although local students will see a price reduction, international students’ tuition will not be reduced and their fees will not be frozen.

As a result of the tuition cuts, Ontario’s university system will lose about $300 million. “Students should remain cautious of reports of a 10-per-cent cut to tuition fees,” the Canadian Federation of Students’ Ontario chapter wrote in a Tweet. “We are concerned about the intentions of this announcement and whether it will make [post secondary education] more affordable.”
