CCPA report urges ON to double funding for universities


A new report from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives Ontario (CCPA) highlights the impacts that the Government of Ontario’s funding cuts have had on ON universities and students. CCPA asserts that ON would need to increase their funding from just under $8.3K per student to over $16K per student if the province wanted to meet the average funding level in Canada. The report also discusses issues with the over-reliance on international students, the exploitation of contract faculty, reduced research funding, and growing class sizes. The CCPA is calling on the province to double its current funding and to restore levels of funding through non-repayable Ontario Student Assistance Program grants.
