Saskatchewan considering cutting tuition too

April 13, 2007

Saskatchewan's NDP government is considering what all students seem to be asking for: a cut to tuition fees. Yesterday's report on accessibility and affordability did not specifically mention a reduction in fees, but the governing NDP is reported to be considering it, with a final decision scheduled for Fall 2007.  The latest Saskatchewan budget froze tuition for a year.  At the federal level, Jack Layton continues to promote the NDP's proposed Post-Secondary Act, which aims to keep education accessible through increased transfer funding, additional needs-based grants, and reformed Canada Student Loans.  The Niagara Falls Review | CBC
