student “choice” initiative
Hands off our student unions!
STUDENT "CHOICE" INITIATIVE
The Student “Choice” Initiative removes collective membership dues for student-run groups and organizations. It makes fees that students have voted on through democratic referenda optional. It will reduce the ability of students’ unions to represent and provide services for their members.
Interest will begin accumulating on student loans immediately after graduation. Students who are in need of financial assistance will be forced to take out a loan no matter their financial situation.
10% REDUCTION IN TUITION FEES
While a 10% reduction provides some relief for students, this reduction does not include a much-needed increase in public funding. Institutions will need to make up for the funding shortfall through budget cuts. International students whose tuition fees remain unregulated will likely see an increase in their fees to make up for this loss.
HERE'S HOW THE STUDENT "CHOICE" INITIATIVE WILL IMPACT STUDENT LIFE ON CAMPUS
Essential services offered by your students’ union will be jeopardized, including:
Program and faculty associations;
Independent student media;
Academic and support services;
Financial supports for student clubs, societies and groups;
Services such as skills-building workshops and professional development opportunities; and
The ability to negotiate labour terms and hold administration accountable
