Coalition, USudbury want funding, French programs transferred from Laurentian

June 10, 2021

CBC reports that the Coalition nord-ontarienne pour une université francophone, which was formed after Laurentian University cut ties with the University of Sudbury, wants to repatriate French programming from Laurentian. Sudbury.com explains that while Laurentian is continuing to offer French programming after terminating the federation agreement and “needs the money that was being transferred to its federated partners for its own operations,” the Coalition wants this funding redirected to USudbury as it transforms into a Francophone university. “It is time to create our French-language university in Sudbury by, for and with franco-Ontarians. This is an historic event,” said USudbury board of regents chair Pierre Riopel. CBC | Sudbury (ON)
