Education For All

About Campaign

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated students’ financial hardships caused by high tuition fees and mounting student debt. The Education For All campaign seeks to build a better understanding of how post-secondary education is funded and highlight the ways in which chronic government under-funding has harmed the quality, accessibility and affordability of education through program cuts, increased precarious work, the privatization of campus resources and an increasing reliance on tuition fees as a source of revenue, mainly from international students.


Campaign Demands

  • Ontario Demands:
    • Immediately reduce tuition fees for the 2020/2021 academic year.
    • Provide more grants, not loans.
    • Increase public funding to gradually eliminate tuition fees for all students.
  • Federal Demands:
    • The progressive reduction and elimination of tuition fees for all students within a new tuition fee framework.
    • The conversion of student loans into non- repayable grants.
    • The removal of interest on outstanding student loans and an end to the chargers on future loans.
