Budget to include $2B for PSE infrastructure

In recent weeks, both the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada and the Association of Canadian Community Colleges have been lobbying the federal government for funds to improve post-secondary education infrastructure. It appears that they have succeeded.

According to Transport Minister John Baird, tomorrow’s federal budget will include $2 billion in spending for maintenance and construction at colleges and universities across the country over the next two years.
