On November 21, the Divisional Court of Ontario unanimously ruled in favour of the Canadian Federation of Students–Ontario (CFS–O) and the York Federation of Students (YFS) in a legal challenge that repealed the provincial government's Student Choice Initiative (SCI).

The SCI — which took effect at the beginning of the 20192020 academic year — was a controversial directive from the province's Ministry of Colleges and Universities (MCU) that allowed postsecondary students to opt out of certain incidental fees deemed "non-essential."

While student groups have been celebrating their victory over the Ford government in court, the specifics of the SCI's demise remain in legal ambiguity.
