PEI to establish task force on PSE

April 24, 2012

In his budget address last Wednesday, PEI's finance minister announced that in partnership with PSE institutions, the province will strike a task force to ensure that PEI residents are gaining the skills and knowledge to strengthen the Island's labour force and improve its competitiveness. The task force will also explore ways to attract and retain students from across Canada and internationally, so that the province's institutions can remain sustainable and build PEI into a PSE destination. The PEI government had notified the University of Prince Edward Island and Holland College well in advance of the budget that their funding would be cut by 3%. PEI Budget Address
