This report examines the impact of rising tuition and living costs on the affordability of a university education in Saskatchewan. It concludes that university education in Saskatchewan became more affordable over the past six years as a direct result of the four-year tuition freeze and growing after-tax income. However, since the lifting of the tuition freeze in 2009, tuition has increased by 10.6 per cent, eroding the affordability of a university education for Saskatchewan students. In order to effectively restore a measure of affordability to university education in our province, government should institute a program of managed tuition reductions, phasing these reductions in over the period of several years.
