The Minister of Higher Education, Pascale Déry, announces that Bishop's University will be exempt of the increase in tuition fees for Canadian students from outside Quebec.

The demographic and linguistic situation in the Estrie region being distinct from that of the greater Montreal region, Bishop's University will be able to continue to welcome a fixed number of students [Canadians not residents of Quebec] at the current rate , indicates the minister in a letter sent to the principal and vice-chancellor of Bishop's University, Sébastien Lebel-Grenier

The minister specifies that a total of 825 price exclusions may be granted to the Estrienne university, which covers the number of Canadian students from outside Quebec currently studying there. p>

Bishop's will also have to comply with a francization target of 80%, but its funding will not be conditional on achieving this target, adds the minister.

Thanks to the absolutely exceptional support of the Estrie community, we managed to obtain real consideration of the circumstances of Bishop's .
