    In 2015-16, the average undergraduate tuition fee in Saskatchewan for full-time students was $6,885 according to Statistics Canada, the second-highest in Canada. Ontario had the highest average undergraduate tuition rate at$ 7,868.

    In November last year, university administrators across the province said they were notified in September 2015 that they had to come up with more than $1 million in funding as the provincial government pulled back on operating grants.

    At the time, the Saskatchewan government said the reductions would save the province $1.4 million.

    In this year’s budget, the university stated that it had base operating grant increase of 0.9 per cent, “the smallest since the funding formula was instituted in 2002.”

    The university will be saving $700,000 by not replacing some vacant positions and reducing non-salary spending.

    Other highlights of the budget include three new academic positions in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences and two new academic positions in the Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies to deal with increased enrolment.

    The university is also hiring another student counsellor psychologist and a discrimination and harassment prevention officer.
