Ontario's University Tuition Framework: A History and Current Policy Issues
Boggs, Andrew Michael
Canadian Journal of Higher Education, v39 n1 p73-87 Mar 2009
Policy-makers and institutional administrators have long struggled with the question of college and university student tuition fees. In many ways this struggle may be characterized as a negotiation between two distinct policy goals: providing revenue to adequately finance higher education and ensuring student accessibility to higher education. The Government of Ontario has wrestled with these competing questions, resulting in major changes to tuition policy over the last 10 years. This article discusses the history of tuition policy in Ontario, recent developments, and outstanding policy challenges relating to institutional behaviour toward the current policy, set to expire in 2009-10. (Contains 2 tables and 3 notes.)
