Students for Barrier Free Access (SBA) Uniiversity of Toronto
Fight The Fees at the University of Toronto
Toronto, Ontario
April 4, 2017
From Students for Barrier-Free Access at University of Toronto:


UofT’s Governing Council is voting on tuition fee increases for students on April 4, 2017. Students at UofT pay among the highest tuition fees in the country on average. Over 50% of students across UofT rely on OSAP and many work multiple part-time and full-time jobs to fund their education. High tuition fees and student debt disproportionately affect low-income, disabled, racialized, and indigenous learners. International students are made to pay the difference for government underfunding. The high cost of education is a significant cause of student distress.


Many students and workers at the University make less than a living wage. The University of Toronto can afford to pay all students and staff who make this University a world-class institution a living wage. This includes Scarborough Campus cafeteria workers currently on strike to end poverty wages.

On April 4, 2017, we are calling on Governors to:

Vote NO to all proposed tuition fee increases

Commit to ensuring a $15/hour minimum wage across the University
