Our pre-budget submission is in and here is a scoop :)
We think that the federal government should invest in fundamental science.
CAUT is urging the government to act on the recommendations of the Naylor Report and invest $1.3 billion over 4 years.
We also made recommendations to sustain Canada’s climate research networks, invest further in Indigenous education, strengthen employment equity programs, and increase federal transfers for post-secondary education.
The next federal budget is a great opportunity for the government to show leadership and build a stronger, more resilient, and more inclusive Canada.
We count on you to spread the word and join our campaign.
