              • UWSA Statement of Support for Ontario Students

                January 25th, 2019

                UNIVERSITY OF WINNIPEG STUDENTS’ ASSOCIATION (UWSA) SUPPORTS ONTARIO STUDENTS’ RESISTANCE TO CHANGES TO THEIR STUDENT AID AND FUNDING.

                WINNIPEG, January 25, 2019 – On January 17, the Ontario Provincial Government announced cuts to post-secondary funding and their students’ right to representation under the pretence of a 10 per cent decrease in tuition fees.

                UWSA Vice President External Affairs, Zee Morales says,” This is another barrier that will make it difficult for marginalized students in Ontario to access post-secondary edution and will inevitably perpetuate a cycle of poverty.”

                Under this plan, funding is limited to students with a family income of $140,000 and below – a decrease from the previous threshold of $170,000. This gives an advantage to one-child families and places a greater emphasis on the family’s income and contribution, regardless of the students’ actual dependency on their families.

                Ontario students are also encouraged to opt-out of fees that aren’t considered “essential” like student union fees which provides necessary services like foodbanks, health plan, transit passes, service centres and ademic advocy.

                Student unions provide these services to make edution accessible to all, especially those who most need it. Unions operate democratilly and as student union members, students have the opportunity to engage with their union and vote on fee changes for services.

                UWSA Vice-President Student Affairs, Jade DeFehr says,” Student unions will not be able to do the work we do without the support and solidarity from the collective student body.”

                This plan also eliminates the six-month grace period after graduation that students previously received to help replay their student loans, forcing students deeper in debt beuse of high interest rates.?Morales urges students in Ontario to continue showing their resistance and hold the Ontario Provincial government accountable.
