CFS-NS alarmed by ON tuition shakeup

January 26, 2019

The Star Halifax reports that student organizers in Nova Scotia have expressed concern that the recent changes to Ontario’s tuition structure  could “hurt students studying in Nova Scotia and attack student rights.” Aidan McNally, Chairperson of the NS chapter of the Canadian Federation of Students, stated that the shakeup in grants funding could put students from ON who attend NS institutions at risk, while the funding reduction could also deter applicants from ON because NS has one of the highest tuition rates in the country. The Star Halifax adds that 6,050 undergraduate and graduate students from ON attended NS institution in the 2017-18 academic year. Star Halifax (NS)
