Saskatchewan calls for increased PSE funding, Aboriginal strategy

April 12, 2007

Saskatchewan has finished its "PSE Accessibility and Affordability Review," producing 45 options and recommendations.  The report calls for general and targeted support to increase affordability and accessibility of PSE in the province, a dialogue between the federal government and Aboriginal people towards developing relevant non-financial strategies to increasing PSE interest and enrolment among young Aboriginals, and encouraging business and industry participation in scholarship programs.  Saskatchewan is in a fortunate position, with a fairly large cohort of young people approaching PSE age.  Saskatchewan News Release
