ACCC submits recommendations to pre-budget consultations

September 20, 2013

The Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC) has released a pre-budget submission document to the federal 2014 standing committee on finance. In the document, ACCC notes recommendations for investment in 3 areas: education and skills training, particularly increasing access for vulnerable Canadians and improving mobility opportunities both inter-jurisdictionally and internationally; infrastructure, through the development of an equipment and deferred maintenance fund; and innovation and commercialization through the funding of research initiatives and partnerships with community organizations. “Federal investments would improve access to PSE, ensure Canadians participate fully in our economy and increase productivity and innovation in industry.” ACCC News Release
