An Educated Election: Ontario’s Student Platform

As Ontario enters into a provincial election, students believe that it is paramount that Ontario’s political leaders ensure that post-secondary education is central to their respective party’s platforms. With all parties recognizing Ontario’s need to address the economic prosperity of the province and a difficult labour market, students have proposed a comprehensive election platform aimed at addressing many of these challenges.

The Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance (OUSA)’s student platform seeks to increase the affordability and accessibility of an undergraduate education in Ontario, as increased university attainment rates will pay economic dividends to the province in both the short- and long-term.
