Talking Points

Talking points on the cuts

Unfunded 10% Tuition Fee Reduction will result in an approximate 4% cut to university budgets. Universities will be under pressure to outsource, cut services, increase precarious employment, and/or lay-off staff. Regressive OSAP changes will result in massive increased student debt and increased burden for mature students. Elimination of Rand Formula-style funding for student unions. Optional student union dues, ancillary fees, and democratic levies could bankrupt.
