OCUFA launched its election website last week with the goal of educating and empowering Ontario voters and highlighting the importance of higher education in the election campaign. It offers a Take Action feature which allows voters to call on party leaders and local candidates to prioritize higher education in this election and to invest in the quality, accessibility and affordability of our universities. Without this investment, our universities are at risk.
In addition to the Take Action feature, the website houses a range of election resources, including expert analysis of issues affecting higher education in the campaign, in-depth analysis of the party platforms, and a copy of the higher education questionnaire that OCUFA has distributed to the party leaders. Additional materials, including party leader responses to the OCUFA questionnaire, will be posted on the website as they become available. Check back often for the latest news and resources.
In the meantime, watch what higher education expert Glen Jones, professor at the University of Toronto, thinks are the important policy issues to look out for in the election, read our analysis of the Ontario PC Party platform and check out the OCUFA higher education survey for the party leaders.
