Former McKay students, instructors express frustration at situation after bankruptcy


McKay Career Training filed for bankruptcy in April, and former students and instructors alike are facing challenges as the situation continues to be unresolved. Former first-year student Taylor Blight told Global News that students were notified of the institution’s bankruptcy and closure over speaker phone. Blight further noted that students were left with student debt and no credentials, as the Government of Saskatchewan was “only willing to pay back unearned tuition.” While the ministry said that it is trying to transfer students into similar programs at other institutions, transcripts pose a challenge as former McKay staff were reportedly locked out of McKay’s online accounts after the bankruptcy process began. Former director of McKay’s Mental Health and First Responder Program Rebecca Ehlert noted that the documents “would not be relevant” due to a curriculum shift that the ministry was reportedly not made aware of.
