University presidential contracts


 

Ontario universities this month began releasing their presidents’ contracts. Maclean’s has requested a copy from each of the province’s publicly-funded universities. As we receive contracts, we will make them available here. We’re also following local media and will link to news stories as they are published. Check back as we will update often.
