$8 million for Conestoga expansion project

April 1, 2009

On Monday, Waterloo Region councillors agreed to give Conestoga College $8.1 million towards its $117-million expansion project, which includes a new campus in Cambridge. The investment will help Conestoga's bid for $55 million in federal funding. The Ontario government has already committed $25 million to the project. The council rejected one councillor's proposal to allow the college to ask for more regional funding if needed. Waterloo Region Record
