Colleges Ontario's 2023 budget submission
Categories: Budget submissions
As Ontario struggles to address the serious shortage of qualified workers, the government is turning to public colleges for solutions. Nevertheless, government continues to cut funding to these same institutions even as there is increasing pressure to increase and enhance the quality programs at Ontario’s colleges.
It’s expected the impending blue-ribbon panel on post-secondary education will conduct a comprehensive examination of the long-term challenges facing the sector. In the interim, the government can address the most immediate pressures in its upcoming spring budget.
