ON receives blue-ribbon panel report on PSE financial sustainability 


The Government of Ontario has received the blue-ribbon panel’s report on how to support the financial sustainability of the province’s postsecondary system. The report’s recommendations include implementing an integrated funding framework, enhancing cost efficiency, and taking steps to reduce risk and monitor international enrolment. The Council of Ontario Universities (COU) called on the province to “immediately implement” the recommendations, particularly the recommendation to implement a three-year tuition fee framework starting with a 5% tuition increase and the recommendation to immediately boost operating grants. ON Minister of Colleges and Universities Jill Dunlop stated that the province is reviewing the panel’s recommendations and indicated that “we need to ensure that colleges and universities […] are operating as efficiently as possible” before ON would agree to tuition increases.
