Queen’s to lose more than $31M in revenue due to OSAP changes

Last month, hundreds of students rallied on the Queen’s University campus against an overhaul to the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP) that saw the province lower the cost of post-secondary tuition.
This change has resulted in a loss of more than $31 million for Queen’s, according to the university.
“When you take $30 million out of the revenues, there’s going to be some impact,” said Queen’s interim provost Dr. Tom Harris. “We’re trying to figure out where we can have the least impact. In areas where services and supports for students are the most crucial, we’re going to ensure we keep those in place.”
