Jan 05, 2024

1st funding application in 2021 was unsuccessful

The First Nations University of Canada (FNUniv) is still waiting for news from the federal government on funding for a new building in Prince Albert, Sask.

The university applied to Infrastructure Canada’s Green and Inclusive Community Buildings (GICB) program last February. The program provides funding toward green and accessible retrofits, repairs, or upgrades, and new construction.

FNUniv president Jacqueline Ottmann said the university asked for $25 million for the new building.

“Once we do hear if it is a yes, if we do get the green light to begin, we can begin construction very quickly,” she said.

“It’s really up in the air right now. I’m just hoping that we hear soon and that it’s a positive response.”
