Saskatchewan to release portion of withheld funding to FNUC

March 19, 2009

The Saskatchewan government will release half of the $200,000 it has been withholding from the First Nations University of Canada since February because of a perceived lack of reform to the school's board of governors. The province is releasing the funds in response to the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations' creation of a subcommittee to study and suggest alternative governance models for the university. The subcommittee is expected to finish its study by early May and will table its recommendations to the FSIN in June. Regina Leader-Post
