MB introduces bill that changes PSE act to improve student safety

The Government of Manitoba has introduced a bill that would alter the Advanced Education Administration Act to improve transparency around sexual violence policies. Under the changes, institutions would be required to make their policy reviews public and would be at risk of losing funding if they failed to meet the act’s requirements. MB Advanced Education and Training Minister Renée Cable explained that the changes will ensure institutions “are accountable and equipped with the tools to respond to and promptly address incidents of sexual violence on campus.”
