Reactions to Federal Budget

January 29, 2009

From Academica’s Top Ten:

Mixed reaction to PSE funding outlined in federal budget: While the Conservative government is being praised for earmarking $2 billion for post-secondary infrastructure in its latest budget, some organizations are disappointed that only 30% of that funding is going towards colleges. Other groups say the budget fails to address necessary investment in provincial transfers for core operating funding, academic research, and student financial aid. In comparison to the US stimulus package, in which billions of dollars are geared towards higher education, Canada’s budget falls short, and may lead to a national brain drain.
