Adult Basic Education Funding Increases

Released on June 17, 2014

The provincial government is providing $25 million in Adult Basic Education (ABE) funding for 2014-15, representing a 9.1 per cent increase in ABE funding over 2013-14 and supporting a total of 700 new training opportunities. 

The increase in funds is part of $42 million for post-secondary and skills training grants in Saskatchewan.

“With record investments in adult basic education, our government is fulfilling our promise in the Plan for Growth to eliminate the ABE waitlist by 2015,” Associate Minister of the Economy Jeremy Harrison said.  “This means, among other things, increasing the seats available to 8,580 and increasing the accessibility of these programs.”

The ABE funding will be directed to the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology, Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies, Dumont Technical Institute, Lakeland College and seven regional colleges. 

Adult Basic Education encompasses a wide range of services, credit, and non-credit programs designed for adult learners.  Other funding for adult education and skills training would include support for: Early Childhood Education, English as a Second Language, Northern Training Programs and certain short-skills programming at the Regina and Saskatoon Trades and Skills Centres.
