Subject Matter of the Lobbying Activity
Specific Topics of Lobbying Communications Intended Outcomes Associated Subject Matters
We support the calls from the BC Federation of Students to take immediate action to address these pressing issues. Specifically, we urge the provincial government to:
1. Cap international student tuition fee increases at 2% annually.
2. Release a transparent plan on how international study permits will be distributed to
institutions in B.C.
3. Complete the Post-Secondary Funding Formula Review and identify gaps in government
funding, particularly for regional colleges and universities.
4. Develop a funding model that provides long-term financial stability for institutions, prioritizes
quality education and services for students, and reduces reliance on student tuition fees as
the primary source of funding.
5. Increase annual funding to B.C. public post-secondary institutions to ensure affordability,
accessibility, and the production of skilled workers needed in the labor force. Footnote1
