KPMG report on MB finances shows “university bias”: ACC president

October 19, 2017

Assiniboine Community College President Mark Frison has described a recent financial report from KPMG as being “university biased.” A recently released report from KPMG recommended that Manitoba freeze college and university grants and eliminate the Tuition Fee Income Tax Rebate program, among other actions. “The way that they look at the information, and admittedly don’t talk to the sector, I’m not sure gives the reader as clear a view of what might need to happen as if you had looked at it in a different way,” said Frison, who notes that he is particularly concerned about how the report did not focus enough on the capacity of schools to accommodate more students. Brandon Sun
