Question Period:

Supporting Ontario’s Students

On February 19, 2019, Goldie Ghamari asked the Hon. Merrilee Fullerton, Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities, about the skyrocketing costs of post-secondary education under the previous Liberal government.

Since 2006, undergraduate tuition for Ontarians have risen from an average of $5,000 to almost $9,000. Students and families are frustrated that the previous Liberal government, propped up by the NDP, allowed tuition fees to increase, making university and college more unaffordable for families and students.

MPP Ghamari asked the Hon. Minister Fullerton what steps our provincial government is taking to provide students and their families with relief.
