Saskatchewan Restores Support for First Nations U. of Canada

Saskatchewan says it will reinstate funds the province provides to the First Nations University of Canada, but the money will flow through the University of Regina, CBC News reported. The province had withdrawn its support for First Nations last month, saying it was fed up with the troubled institution‘s delays in sorting out administrative and financial problems. The federal government followed suit, which led to major governance changes at the university. Saskatchewan moved to restore the funds on Tuesday after a deal was signed by the province, the University of Regina, First Nations University, and the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations. It is not yet known whether the federal government will restore the money it cut off.
