Ontario to fund 60,000 PSE seats

Province says plan will cost $309 million


Ontario’s Liberal government is set to announce funding for 60,000 new post-secondary education seats in Tuesday’s budget. The plan, which would be fully realized by 2015-16, would cost approximately $309 million. The Canadian Press reported that despite a deficit of nearly $17 billion for the current fiscal year, Finance Minister Dwight Duncan says that education and health care will be safe from any cost cutting measures.
