Investment in Saskatchewan Post-Secondary Infrastructure

Released on August 19, 2016

Canadians will be better equipped for the well-paying middle-class jobs of today and tomorrow as a result of $63 million through the Strategic Investment Fund to expand, repair and modernize Saskatchewan’s post-secondary institutions.

The funding was announced today by Advanced Education Minister Scott Moe and Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety, on behalf of Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development.

“Investments in the infrastructure of our post-secondary system help our students and support our economy,” Moe said.  “The projects being funded will generate direct economic activity in communities around Saskatchewan and improve the quality of facilities at the institutions for our students.”

The Government of Canada’s Innovation Agenda (https://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/062.nsf/eng/home) aims to make this country a global centre for innovation—one that creates jobs, drives growth across all industries and improves the lives of all Canadians.  This investment exemplifies that vision in action.

“This once-in-a-generation investment by the Government of Canada is a historic down payment on the government’s vision to position Canada as a global centre for innovation,” said Goodale.  “That means making Canada a world leader in turning ideas into solutions, science into technologies, skills into jobs and start-up companies into global successes.  This investment will create conditions that are conducive to innovation and long-term growth, which will in turn keep the Canadian economy globally competitive.”

The projects will provide facility upgrades through renovations and updates to physical buildings at the institutions.  This in turn will develop a more efficient means of operating, creating better learning environments for students.

Some of the projects are already underway.  Work on all of the projects is expected to be complete by April 2018.
