Study into university needs of central

The federal and provincial governments will spend over $70,000 to investigate the need for post-secondary education in Central Newfoundland.

The study will include an assessment of the educational, social, cultural and developmental needs of the region. It will also include a needs assessment of current and future demand and the capacity for courses, and develop a series of strategies and actions designed to meet the needs identified.

The Central Newfoundland University Committee (CNUC) will conduct the study. The research project should be completed within the next several months.

Of the total financial commitment of $73,860, the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) is providing $52,500 through its Business Development Program. The remainder of the funding, $21,360, is being provided under the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Labour Market Development Agreement (LMDA), a partnership between Human Resources Development Canada and the provincial Department of Youth Services and Post-Secondary Education.
