Manitoba ends tuition freeze

April 22, 2009

The Manitoba government announced yesterday it will allow up to a 4.5% increase in university tuition fees and a $100 increase in college tuition fees, effectively ending a decade-old tuition freeze. The increases are consistent with recommendations from a recently released report on tuition and PSE accessibility. The province will continue its effort to provide affordable and accessible education by boosting its investment in bursary and access programs by $2.5 million.
