NB releases 2014-15 provincial budget

February 6, 2014

The New Brunswick government has tabled its 2014-15 budget, which affirms the 2% increase to operating grants for universities and colleges and 3% annual tuition cap announced in November. Funding for deferred maintenance and other PSE initiatives have been maintained at 2013-14 levels. The New Brunswick Student Alliance (NBSA) says it is “disillusioned by the provincial government’s failure to invest in a more affordable, accessible, high-quality PSE system in NB” despite having saved $8.2 million in PSE, Training and Labour.
