Over the course of the past month, we have seen people come together to call for equitable treatment of international students and greater regulation of international tuition in colleges across Ontario. Post-secondary institutions are beginning to enter into conversations with their student associations about the campaign’s demands, and Centennial College has even publicly disclosed the difference in revenue between international and domestic students, demonstrating a win for transparency!
Some other highlights from the campaign as of December 21, 2022 include:
- Over 20 Media Interviews
- 1196 people sent letters to decision-makers
- Over 70 student stories submitted
- Over 4,900 people visited the #NeedOrGreed campaign website
- The campaign’s social media had a reach of over 160,982
- Over 150 people joined us at the Queen’s Park for our protest, including MPP Adil Shamji (Liberal Party Critic of Colleges and Universities)
While the awareness campaign has ended, our efforts will continue in the coming months. We will continue to push government and college decision-makers for meetings and continue to use other advocacy avenues to help bring positive long-term changes to international tuition in Ontario.
Thank you to everyone who has supported and continues to support the campaign. Together, we can all continue to call for change and be a united voice.
