Quebec tuition freeze to end

After decades of frozen tuition fees left Quebec’s rates the lowest in Canada—and less than half the average in other provinces—students will have to dig deeper beginning in the fall of 2012. The Quebec government moved Feb. 17 to stave off funding crisis in its universities with a budget that includes increases in university tuition, currently $2,168 a year, by $325 annually over five years. By 2016, undergraduate students will be paying $3,793, still below the current national average. National Post article
