Ministers won’t unite on out-of-province fees

Thank you for drawing to my attention the views of CAUT on the financial barriers that you believe may hinder the mobility of students at the post-secondary level.

The ministers of education took note of your concerns at their Feb. 17-18 meeting. They also reviewed and discussed recent developments pertaining to the introduction of out-of-province fees and to the conditions that exist in certain jurisdictions with regard to the portability of student financial assistance for out-of-province study.

The ministers decided not to take a collective position on these issues at this time.
