The Update


Hello and welcome to #UTSUwithU’s The Updatethe weekly blog where you’ll be able to keep up with recent developments, how students and the UTSU are responding, and media coverage of the Ford government’s changes to student finance.

Every week, we will update you on what has happened, including links to helpful news articles and an inside look at the UTSU’s lobbying strategy and efforts. When the Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities makes an announcement, we’ll break it down for you. When the media publishes an insightful piece on how students are affected, we’ll let you know. When we make a breakthrough with the province or the university, you’ll hear about it here.

In addition to delivering weekly updates, The Update has been set up as a platform for your stories. We want to hear from students who have been, or will be, affected by changes to tuition, OSAP, and the rollback of the free-tuition program. We want to know how non-academic programs have impacted your university experience. We want to highlight what students are doing to organize against the Ford government’s changes. We want to hear from you.

If you have a story you want people to hear, talk to us.
