Colleges Ontario calls for changes in line with blue-ribbon panel report 


Colleges Ontario has issued a statement calling on the provincial government to enact changes that align with the recommendations made in the recent blue-ribbon panel report. They called for an end to the province’s tuition freeze and the approval of a 5% tuition increase, as well as a 10% increase in operating grants for September 2024, the creation of a distinct tuition policy for public colleges, lifting of the cap on high-demand programs, and the implementation of changes that will allow more people to study part time. “These investments in student success will help ensure Ontario’s future work force has the expertise to succeed in a rapidly evolving labour market,” said Colleges Ontario President Marketa Evans.
