Cambrian, Northern to lose “millions” with end of PPPs

CBC reporter Kate Rutherford has penned an article on the impact that the end of public-private partnerships (PPPs) will have on colleges in northern Ontario. Cambrian College President Kristine Morrissey said that while the Sudbury campus is facing a smaller reduction than it initially feared, it will experience revenue loss as its partnership with Hanson College in Brampton winds down. This will reduce the college’s revenue by about $25M each year. Northern College will phase out a partnership with Pures College in Midland and Scarborough, which will reduce Northern’s revenue by about $30M a year or a third of the college’s budget. Northern President Mitch Dumas said that the college will make adjustments and that “some part-time positions may not be required.”
