The Province of Saskatchewan has agreed to continue its funding for the First Nations University; however the Federal Government, as of yet, has not reinstated its funding. Please read below the email that is being circulated by the Canadian Association of University Teachers and click on the link to sign the letter to Prime Minister Harper. Meegwetch!
We would like to invite you to sign the Open Letter to Stephen Harper regarding the Federal Government's funding of First Nations University of Canada. The letter is reproduced below. If you wish to sign the letter, please go to http://www.caut.ca/fnuc/ and click on the line "Add your signature to this letter." I hope you will do so and will forward this email as widely as possible. Unless we can get the Federal Government to restore full funding, the First Nations University will not survive.
