NSAC to gain independence from NS Agriculture

December 8, 2007

The Nova Scotia Minister of Agriculture indicates that legislation to remove the Nova Scotia Agricultural College, in Truro, from the Department of Agriculture may be introduced as early as this session, after a decade of discussion. Since its founding in 1905, NSAC "has been handicapped" by "astronomical" paperwork, because unlike most colleges and universities, it is not standalone. Royal Military College in Kingston is the only other Canadian institution organized similarly.
