The Government of Saskatchewan has introduced The Post-Secondary Education and Skills Training Act, 2021. The new act is intended to modernize legislation related to postsecondary education and the skills training sector. It will apply to all postsecondary institutions receiving government funding, and will update the minister’s responsibilities and powers, centralize grant-making authority to postsecondary institutions, and reflect current practices and requirements related to accountability and reporting. “Modernizing the Act was accomplished in collaboration with the post-secondary sector,” said SK Advanced Education Minister Gene Makowsky. “The new Act will ensure a consistent level of oversight and accountability across a diverse set of post-secondary education and skills training institutions that receive public dollars.”
