Does the Student Choice Initiative still allow me to opt-out of non-essential fees?

The provincial government’s Student Choice Initiative was subject to a successful court challenge on November 21, 2019. Until the conclusion of a legal appeal, non-tuition fees will appear on invoices and there is no opt-out available for those services previously deemed “non-essential”. The limited ancillary fees that remain optional include the Health and Dental Plans with proof of alternative coverage, the Laurier Students’ Public Interest Research Group, and Prism Resources for students enrolled in the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics. More information on incidental fees is available here.
