Taking action on climate change
Ontario needs a post-secondary action plan on climate change.
It should include new training to produce a more specialized workforce, capital investments to improve energy efficiency and a commitment to applied research that develops new solutions to the challenge.
Promoting student wellness on campuses
Ontario has to build on its important investments in mental health.
The next government should increase the funding for front-line services on campuses and improve students' access to care.
Investing in college education
Auditor general Bonnie Lysyk has warned the colleges' fiscal situation is "risky."
The next provincial government must collaborate with colleges on a comprehensive strategy to promote the long-term sustainability of college education.
Putting Ontario at the forefront of innovation
College education needs to be at the leading edge of this new age of innovation.
New technology and more flexible learning will ensure Ontario's college graduates help drive greater prosperity.
