Investing in Ontario's Workforce: Strong Colleges for a Strong Ontario--Multi-Year Investment Proposal. ACAATO Document
Association of Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology of Ontario
Ontario's colleges are eager to partner with the Government of Ontario to expand college capacity by at least 10 percent and double the number of apprentices over the next five years. Assuming that Government will continue to fund enrolment growth, colleges are fully prepared to improve access to applied education and increase enrolment levels. Ontario's colleges are also committed to working with the Government of Ontario to improve the quality of applied education and to make postsecondary education more affordable. Ontario's colleges recognize the delicate balance between the fiscal capacity of the Government of Ontario and the urgent need for new public investments in programs, services and resources. As a result, the 2007/08 targets outlined in this submission reflect an important milestone in working toward the total amount of funding Ontario's colleges require to maximize their ability to contribute to the economic growth and social prosperity of the province. Goals: Planning to Meet Ontario's Workforce Challenges are appended. (Contains 18 endnotes.)
