FNUC announces travel & hiring freeze to save $1.1 million

December 13, 2007

The First Nations University of Canada is facing cuts to accommodate its $1.2 million deficit.  10 positions that are currently open at the school will remain vacant in order to save $400,000 in wages.  A variety of positions are included in this group -- from faculty to student service and maintenance.  The school has also announced a travel freeze and program mergers.  With these measures in place, the deficit will hopefully be reduced to $100,000.
