Quebec to index university tuition fees

February 25, 2013

The Quebec government will implement a form of indexation of university tuition fees despite strong opposition from student organizations. The indexation will come into effect in September with the start of the fall term and will be adopted by government decree, according to government sources. The indexation may involve a yearly increase of about $40 to $80 annually, depending on the formula to be adopted. The province will propose to mitigate the increase either by reducing extra fees universities charge or improving the student loans and bursaries program. Globe and Mail
