PEI higher ed institutions receive $20M in federal infrastructure support

October 4, 2016

The governments of Canada and Prince Edward Island have announced that they will together invest nearly $21M in postsecondary infrastructure across PEI. A federal release states that along with contributions from the island’s institutions and private donors, the funds will total more than $23M for the University of Prince Edward Island and Holland College. Nearly $6M of the combined funds will be used to renovate UPEI’s Dalton Hall building, with the goal of transforming it into an eHUB and Student Success Centre. The changes will reportedly support work-integrated learning and the development of an experiential learning hub, with the aim of recruiting and retaining young people to grow the province's population.
