Supreme Court Charter Challenge
Remember when this was a thing? (page 117 of our Collective Agreement) Instead, the Ford government canceled it and is now (as announced at Brockville last week) expanding private colleges and weakening funding for our schools. This is also going to the Supreme Court as a Charter Challenge.
Without limiting the ability of the Task Force to explore key relevant issues, the Task Force specifically will consider and develop recommendations on the following matters in relation to:
- Appropriate staffing models, including, but not limited to, faculty complement, and the issue of precarious work
- The necessary funding requirements to support the delivery of quality education and training in the Ontario college system to ensure that it is innovative, relevant and responsive
- Accessibility and student success, including student mental health and labour-market readiness
- Academic governance structures and intellectual property issues that will promote excellence in college education, research, and training The Ministry agrees to accept and endorse this initiative, accepting signatory.
