OTTAWA, Sept. 9 2015 /CNW/ - Representatives of the Canadian Federation of Students will be available for comment following the release of Statistics Canada's annual tuition fee survey.

In polling conducted for the Canadian Federation of Students by Abacus and Media Style, reducing tuition fees was chosen by 70 percent of respondents as the single most important step a government should take around universities and colleges. 85 percent of respondents also oppose increases in tuition fees.

The Canadian Federation of Students is composed of over one-half million students across the country from more than 80 university and college students' unions. Post-secondary students in Canada have been represented by the Canadian Federation of Students and its predecessor organisations since 1927.
