NS must provide "desperately needed strategic investment" in university infrastructure

March 3, 2009

As the Nova Scotia government prepares its next budget, bricks and mortar are on the minds of many university presidents in the province. The Council of Nova Scotia University Presidents reports a $543-million infrastructure deficit among the province's 11 universities. The council's revised plan calls for an $85-million investment in projects deemed most critical. The province's Liberal party urges the government provide "desperately needed strategic investment" in university infrastructure, and to ensure the schools are able to access funding made available in the recent federal budget.
