QC to offer financial incentives to universities that help meet labour shortages


The Government of Québec recently announced that it will offer financial incentives for universities that register and graduate students in sectors wherein the province is experiencing a labour shortage. These priority sectors include health, education, information technology, and engineering. The incentives will be rolled out from Fall 2024 until 2028. This announcement is part of a wider reworking of QC’s university funding policy, which also includes the increase in tuition fees for out-of-province students that was announced earlier in the academic year.
