The University of Regina was recently ranked 4th in a Maclean’s magazine article listing the “18 Most Expensive Universities to study in Canada for Canadians living away from home.” The University of Saskatchewan also made the most expensive list coming in at number 10. This means the two Saskatchewan universities are in the top 10 of the most expensive universities in Canada! This is why a tuition freeze and a real plan to make education affordable and accessible for all must come into place immediately.
We the undersigned are calling on the Government of Saskatchewan and the respective University Administrations to put in place a tuition freeze now, and work on a plan of action to ensure that post-secondary education become affordable and accessible to all in the long term.
After a decade of tuition increases, the time for a tuition freeze is now!
