Province Introduces Changes To Modernize Post-Secondary Education Legislation

Released on November 18, 2021

Today, the Government of Saskatchewan introduced changes to legislation to better support the post-secondary education and skills training sector. The updated legislation will also complement the specific Acts that currently govern post-secondary institutions.

"Modernizing the Act was accomplished in collaboration with the post-secondary sector," Advanced Education Minister Gene Makowsky said. "The new Act will ensure a consistent level of oversight and accountability across a diverse set of post-secondary education and skills training institutions that receive public dollars."

The Post-Secondary Education and Skills Training Act, 2021 will:

  • Apply more broadly to all post-secondary education institutions that receive funding from government;
  • Update responsibilities and powers of the minister to improve oversight and accountability;
  • Centralize grant-making authority to post-secondary education institutions; and
  • Reflect current accountability practices and reporting requirements.

Earlier this year, the government provided a multi-year funding commitment that encourages long-term financial sustainability and supports growth in the sector. The proposed legislation supports this funding commitment and positions the sector to respond to future priorities.
