Program, job cuts at CNA

April 8, 2013

College of the North Atlantic president Ann Marie Vaughan says funding cuts in the Newfoundland and Labrador budget will result in several programs being axed and the loss of more than 100 jobs. "Right now we are looking at about 143 people who will face layoffs, about 88 which will be direct layoffs," Vaughan says. "The others would be people who would normally be expected to be called back in the September period." She says the college was strategic with the program reductions, targeting programs that had significantly low enrolment. Vaughan says CNA must now focus on addressing approximately $4 million in reductions on the management and administrative side of the operation in order to balance the college's budget. News of the program and job cuts follows the announcement that CNA's Adult Basic Education program will be privatized, resulting in job losses at the institution. CNA News Release | CBC
