Details on Government Funding

The Provincial Budget saw a major cut to the Operating Grant funding for Post-Secondary Institutions in Alberta. At the University of Alberta the $549,536,000 in operating funds (after the cuts) is only slightly higher than the support of $549,362,000 the institution received in the 2008/2009 budget. This is a major loss to the University, which had budgeted for the promised 2% increase in operating support from the Province at $591,556,000.
