USudbury “worried” by ON silence as federal funding sits on table

August 23, 2021
The Sudbury Star reports that the University of Sudbury is waiting to hear whether the Government of Ontario will commit the funds necessary for the university to gain access to part of the $121M federal investment announced two weeks ago. “We want part of that money to flow through the community,” said USudbury president Serge Miville. “If we don’t act on this, Sudbury is going to miss out on millions of dollars that would be put towards Francophone post-secondary education.” Miville described the investment as an almost risk-free opportunity for the province to secure significant funding for the French-language university. The university is also awaiting recognition from the ministry for its programs before it begins accepting transfer requests from students. The Sudbury Star (ON)
