In today’s rapidly changing economy, a truly affordable and accessible post-secondary education system needs to be a top priority. The current system, with its high up-front costs and resulting unsustainable levels of student debt, acts as a barrier for many people to full participation in the economy, which impacts everyone.

This paper outlines a clear path towards accessible post-secondary education in Canada. By shifting the focus of, and slightly increasing, current federal funding for post-secondary education, it is possible to reduce tuition and other compulsory fees to zero as a means of easing the financial burden on new graduates, with clear spinoff benefits for the wider economy.
