May 16, 2018

CBC has learned that the Saskatchewan government has allocated $21M for the Saskatchewan Student Aid fund, $18.6M less than its 2011-12 amount. University of Regina student Julian Wotherspoon told CBC that the province is “squeezing [students] with financial aid and then they're squeezing the university with operational grants and other funding.” The SK Ministry of Advanced Education stated that it continues to offer the Saskatchewan Graduate Retention Program, which reportedly provides income tax credits for up to $20K in tuition fees. CBC
