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.
