ON rejects funding proposal from USudbury


Université de Sudbury’s request for funding to create a standalone French-language university has reportedly been rejected by the Government of Ontario. The ON Ministry of College and Universities issued a statement asserting that the request “does not reflect the current demand and enrolment trends” and that there is already “existing capacity” for French-language programming at other institutions. USudbury President Serge Miville told CTV News and La Pressethat the university was surprised by this news, as discussions with ON about the project have been positive to date, but that the university is “not giving up.”
