Manitoba tuition freeze thawed

Province lifts decade-old freeze, allows universities to charge students up to 4.5 per cent more

As reported by The Winnipeg Sun:

For the first time since the 1998-99 school year, university and college students in Manitoba will see an increase in their tuition fees this fall.

The provincial government announced this morning that it is lifting its decade-old tuition freeze, and will allow universities to charge students up to 4.5% more for tuition this year. That amounts to an average of about $135 more for a typical arts or science student. Colleges will be allowed to charge students $100 more this year.
