Translated Summay: The University of Calgary expects hundreds of positions will be terminated in the coming months to meet budget needs in 2020, but that number could increase depending on COVID-19’s impact. The Alberta government announced in February it was cutting provincial funding by six per cent (from the previous year) for post-secondary institutions. This reduction resulted in more than $20 million decrease to the University of Calgary (Campus Alberta Grant). Linda Dalgetty, University of Calgary’s Vice-President of Finances and Services, said many international students have returned to their home countries amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. The university is watching the fall semester closely and how the pandemic might impact the term.
