OUSA calls for better PSE access, increased university funding

January 13, 2009

In its budget submission to the Ontario Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs, the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance recommends the province enhance PSE access by regulating tuition fee levels and offering up-front access grants. Providing universities with additional one-time funding to meet the cost of rising enrolment and boosting operating grant funding will allow Ontario to position itself as a leader in the knowledge economy. OUSA also seeks a 12-month grace period on student loan repayment and lower interest rates. Read OUSA's budget submission
