NS invests $25M in postsecondary institutions to mitigate the financial impact of COVID-19

January 15, 2021
Nova Scotia is investing $25M in postsecondary institutions to help them address the lost revenue and increase in costs brought on by COVID-19. Each institution’s portion of the investment is based on its COVID-19 related expenditures. “Since the beginning of the pandemic, universities across Nova Scotia have been working hard to ensure students can continue to learn in safe and positive ways,” said Bill Lahey, chair of the Council of Nova Scotia University Presidents. “These changes have presented unexpected financial costs and necessary investments, and this funding will help universities address the impact of those.” NS (NS)
