Colleges in Ontario have requested a 5% increase in tuition fees by next September. Colleges are requesting that the Ontario government increase operating grants by 10% and raise the enrollment threshold on high-demand programs to allow for additional student enrollment. The requests come after an independent panel discovered last week that colleges and institutions around the province are experiencing financial difficulties.

Colleges Ontario has recommended that the government rescind the tuition freeze enacted in 2019 and raise post-secondary schools' per-student funding.
