University and province finalize new strategic mandate agreement

Queen’s and the Ontario government have finalized the university’s latest Strategic Mandate Agreement (SMA) and it is now available in full on the Ministry of Colleges and Universities website.

SMAs are a key component of the province’s accountability framework for all post-secondary institutions in Ontario. They outline the government’s objectives and priority areas for the higher education system, outline performance-based funding details, build transparency and accountability objectives, and establish targets and objectives for the next five years, through 2024-25.

Queen’s finalized SMA follows close to a year of consultations and negotiations between the province and an internal working group at Queen’s.
