NS releases 2023-24 Budget


Nova Scotia recently released its 2023-24 Budget. Universities will receive a $3.8M increase (1%) to their operating grants in keeping with the current Memorandum of Understanding. Nova Scotia Community College will receive $97.2M for its Sydney Waterfront Campus and three student housing projects. The budget primarily focuses on healthcare, and several investments in healthcare have a direct impact on the postsecondary education sector, including new nursing training seats at Cape Breton University, Dalhousie University, St. Francis Xavier University, and Nova Scotia Community College; medical school seats for Dal; and free tuition for those training to become continuing care assistants.
