On April 15, 2013, the joint task force issued its final report on the Improving Education and Employment Outcomes for First Nations and Métis People. The report can be found here.

Degree-Granting in Saskatchewan

The Degree Authorization Act expands degree-granting authority in the province beyond our two universities, by allowing other post-secondary institutions to apply for the authority to offer degree programs.

Established quality standards determine an institution's capacity to offer degrees and the Ministry assesses proposed new degree programs.
