Compulsory Ancillary Fees

What are Ancillary Fees Collected For? 

Compulsory Ancillary fees are collected to provide necessary services, and supports to students, in various ways throughout the year.

Important Update: 

In January 2019, the Ontario Ministry of Colleges & Universities (MCU), announced the Student Choice Initiative (known at Lakehead as "Choose My Ancillary Fees"). This classification framework allowed students to opt-out of paying for services that the Ontario government deemed "non-essential". This is no longer in place as Ontario's Divisional Court ruled to quash this measure by the government of Ontario. The appeal was also denied.
