Join us at Queen's Park and voice your concern over International student tuition fees.
IGNITE has joined multiple other colleges to advocate on behalf of international students, specifically regarding the cost of tuition, in a campaign called Need or Greed. Learn more about the campaign.
One aspect of this three-week long campaign involves participating in a march at Queen’s Park on Thursday, Nov. 17 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to raise awareness surrounding the high cost of international tuition! International students are already facing enough challenges without throwing in rising tuition costs that are already exponentially higher than their domestic counterparts.
To make a change, we must be engaged! We invite you to join us in advocating for your well-being or that of your fellow students. Transportation to and from Queen’s Park will be provided for you and those in attendance will receive a free hoodie or t-shirt while supplies last. Check out the details below to learn more!
