Quebec unveils new financial aid measures to assure PSE accessibility

April 5, 2012

The Quebec government proposed a new student aid policy Thursday to meet students' objections to a planned tuition fee increase. The new policy calls for the repayment of student loans proportionate to graduates' income. Even with the new measures to appease students concerned about paying for their university education, the province insists it will not budge from its position on the tuition fee increase. Several students told the CBC that the new policy does nothing to change their position, and that nothing short of a tuition fee freeze will suffice.
