Pandemic prompts Alberta government to pare back post-secondary funding model changes - Janet French, CBC News

 The Alberta government is scaling back its plans for tying post-secondary institutions' funding to their performance this year. Starting this fall, five per cent of provincial funding to polytechnics, colleges and universities will be contingent on their ability to meet one target. Taylor Hides, press secretary to Advanced Education Minister Demetrios Nicolaides, said in an email this week that all institutions are expected to meet their targets this year.
