August 16, 2016

Colleges and Institutes Canada has issued a set of eight recommendations for the 2016-17 federal budget whose priorities include applied research, Indigenous education, and essential skills training. Among the recommendations is a call for a 400% increase in investments for college and institute applied research over the next five years, rising from $75M to $300M per year. CICan's pre-budget submission also asks Canada to invest more in providing innovative adult education that supports the economic development of Indigenous and northern communities. CICan | Report
