TORONTO, June 24, 2022 – “Ontario’s universities congratulate the Ministers sworn in today to the Cabinet of Premier Doug Ford, and look forward to partnering with all new and re-appointed Ministers to help build Ontario.
We extend special congratulations to Minister Jill Dunlop on her re-appointment as Minister of Colleges and Universities, and offer Minister Dunlop our full support as we continue to work together to help implement the Ministry’s mandate, drive economic growth and create a better future for our students, communities and province.
As the government continues to work to make life affordable for Ontarians, rebuild our health-care system and grow the economy, Ontario’s universities remain committed to helping meet growing labour market needs by developing a highly skilled workforce, ensure student success and fuel economic growth through ground-breaking research, innovation and commercialization.
We also look forward to partnering with Ministers across Cabinet as we work together to address the changing needs of Ontarians and the province.
Successful students, leading-edge innovation and strong community partnerships are vital for a strong Ontario that is well-positioned to address society’s most pressing issues.
Ontario’s universities welcome the opportunity to work alongside the province, and across sectors, to address Ontario’s most critical challenges and help build a better Ontario for all.”
