CCPA, OUSA release new reports focused on affordability.

January 21, 2022
New reports focused on postsecondary education’s affordability were recently released by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) and the Ontario University Student Alliance (OUSA). CCPA has released a study of the tuition and funding changes at Memorial University which indicates that the changes will erode Memorial’s ability to attract learners. CCPA reports that the cost of an undergraduate degree will double for international students and more than double for in-province students. In Ontario, OUSA has released a report on a student survey conducted in 2020 which found that students continue to struggle with financing their education and face significant challenges related to debt, financial aid, and employment.
