QC increases tuition for out-of-province students studying at anglophone universities


The Government of Québec recently announced that out-of-province students coming to Québec’s anglophone universities will have to pay almost twice as much tuition, starting in Fall 2024. This change impacts out-of-province students seeking to attend McGill University, Concordia University, or Bishop’s University, with the minimum cost for tuition rising from the current $8,992 to about $17K per year. QC Minister of the French Language Jean-François Roberge explained that this new fee structure will increase funding for French-language universities and promote the French language throughout the province. In a statement for the Bishop’s Principal Sébastien Lebel-Grenier said that this change could represent an “existential threat” to Québec’s anglophone universities.
