In pre-budget submission, Universities Canada calls for focus on talent, research excellence, communities


Universities Canada has prepared a statement for the Government of Canada’s pre-budget submissions that urges the federal government to make critical investments in people, ideas, and communities. The three main recommendations in the submission are: To attract, develop, and retain talent; to strengthen research excellence and competitiveness; and to build healthy, green, and accessible communities. “In the global competition for talent, Canada must take urgent measures to keep up,” said Universities Canada Interim President Philip Landon. “Canada’s future depends on investments in developing and attracting skilled talent, strengthening research excellence and building healthy, green and accessible communities.”
