Citing money woes, private Edmonton college puts classes on hold 

June 25, 2019

Edmonton Digital Arts College has suspended classes because of financial problems, reports the Edmonton Journal. Owen Brierley, the private college’s owner, said he hopes to finalize a deal to sell the college and resume classes next week. He added that he is doing all he can to keep the college’s 50 students up to date, and has offered to find them placements in other programs in a worst-case scenario. Laurie Chandler, press secretary for Advanced Education Minister Demetrios Nicolaides, added that the provincial government will place students at another institution in the event of a closure. Edmonton Journal (AB)
