Ontario Expects to Increase Tuition Next Year

Students across Ontario are suddenly left wondering if the tuition fee consultations that they are currently engaged in with the government are a sham. This morning, during a public address at Carleton University, McGuinty told students that the highly popular tuition fee freeze, in place since September 2004, will be lifted.

“We are going to lift that freeze,” said Premier McGuinty. Carole Saab, president of the Carleton University Students’ Association asked, “Does this lifting of the freeze mean that there will be a tuition fee increase next year?” McGuinty replied, “Yes.”
