International students were not charged differential tuition fees prior to the late 1970’s. During the negotiations of federal
transfer payments to the provinces in 1976, the federal
government suggested that introducing differential tuition fees was an acceptable way for the provinces to generate additional revenue at institutions.

Throughout the 1990s, tuition fees in Canada skyrocketed for both international students and Canadian citizens as federal and provincial governments cut funding for post-secondary education. Cash-strapped university administrators increasingly turned to tuition fees to cover operating expenses. In 1988, government funding accounted for roughly 84 percent of university operating budgets. Today, that figure has dropped to below 50 percent.
