Résumé

We are interested in the role tuition fees play in social re- production. We use retrospective biographical data from a ser ies of surveys on family events, lo ng series on tuition fees and methods from event history analysis to study the effect of the level of tuition fees on university enrolment in two Canadian provinces, Quebec and Ontario. We focus on the variation of their effect on enrolment ac- cording to so cial origin, province, language and immigration status. Not considering age, the level of tuition fees increase s enrolment for children of highly educated parents or immigrants, has no effect among the Quebec English - speaking, but decreases enrolment in al l other groups. However, in most groups, the deterring effect increas- es with age . Among immigrants and their children, as well as among the Ontario English - speaking, the slope of the relation between the effect of tuition fees and age is markedly steep: In these groups , there seem s to be a limited age window during which parents are willing to invest in their children ’s education.
