The Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services has released its final report. The report’s recommendations include both priorities that the TRUSU Campaigns Committee presented in its submission on September 17, 2016.

The Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services is an all-party committee that tours the province each fall to hear presentations from community groups. The committee forms recommendations for the upcoming provincial budget based on these submissions.

“We raised two key issues with government and are excited that the importance of both were recognized,” said Amber Storvold, TRUSU Vice-President External. “We need a provincial need-based grants system that will help every student with financial need, and TRU needs appropriate government funding that reflects its expanding role in the province.”

“The inclusion of these recommendations in the final report is an important recognition of the work we need to do to reform the post-secondary system in British Columbia,” said Storvold. “We hope to see provincial government act on these recommendations in the upcoming budget.”
