URegina students’ union calls on SK to lower tuition fees


The University of Regina Students Union (URSU) has called on the Government of Saskatchewan to increase funding for postsecondary education and lower provincial tuition fees. According to a new URSU report entitled “Fund the Future: The State of Saskatchewan’s Post-Secondary Sector,” SK undergraduate tuition fees are higher than the national average and causing considerable financial stress for students. In response, SK Minister of Advanced Education Gordon Wyant said that the ministry is in the process of examining the report’s findings. Wyant added that a potential tuition cap is on the table and underlined that the province has significant supports available to students.
