Universities Canada highlights Indigenous learning in federal budget submission

August 24, 2016

Research and Innovation, Indigenous higher education, and talent mobilization are the three top priorities listed in Universities Canada’s 2017 federal budget submission. The submission states that 2017 will provide an opportunity for Canada to “ensure the country’s future is one that … advances reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and establishes Canada as a global champion of pluralism and diversity.” The submission also emphasizes the need for “direct financial assistance for Indigenous students and initiatives that support Indigenous student access, retention, and academic success at university.”
