Québec Policy on University Funding

In a knowledge-based society that is open to the world, Québec universities must contribute more actively than ever before to social and economic development. This new policy has various objectives that fall under four major strategic orientations, which concern:

  • accessibility to university studies and student success
  • society’s needs and openness to the world
  • research and innovation
  • university system performance and efficiency

To ensure that the universities have the tools they need to implement these orientations, the Ministère is currently revising its university-funding policy with the following objectives in mind:

  • to ensure that public funds are allocated in a fair and equitable manner
  • to facilitate the planning of university activities
  • to provide universities with less onerous accountability mechanisms
  • to improve the funding and financial situation of universities through reinvestments announced in the government’s economic plan for the period from March 2016 to March 2018
