QC to reject offer not to raise tuition for McGill, Concordia students 


According to CTV News, the Government of Québec has rejected a proposal from Bishop’s University, Concordia University, and McGill University that would keep tuition rates the same for out-of-province students starting next fall. On Monday, the English-language universities promised that they would increase their efforts in French-language education if QC backtracked on its plan to increase tuition for out-of-province students. A statement from QC indicated that the proposal was a “step in the right direction,” but that they would “stay the course” on the tuition hike while finding “a specific solution for Bishop’s.” When pressed for additional comment by CTV News, representatives from QC indicated that the plan to increase tuition for McGill and Concordia would proceed.
