Statement from Principal Woolf on provincial budget

Government of Ontario releases 2018 budget.

The 2018 Ontario budget proposes to continue the government's commitment to enhancing access to post-secondary education through the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP), as well as further investments in the renewal of university and college classrooms and facilities, mental health services, skills development, and experiential learning.

Universities play a critical role in preparing the highly-skilled workforce that Ontario needs to remain globally-competitive. Queen’s will continue to encourage the government to make further investments to ensure the quality of education at Ontario’s universities and to support faculty renewal, innovation, and the development of new experiential learning opportunities for students.
