An increase to the number of students planning to head to Ontario universities this fall.  

The Council of Ontario Universities says applications are up 1.8% over last year.

President David Lindsay credits that to changes to the Ontario Student Assistance Program which is making tuition free to eligible students.

Lindsay says they still need to ensure institutions have the money to support that growth, noting operating grants from the province have not kept pace.
