The Government of Canada Invests in Improving the Church Point Campus' Infrastructure and Learning Spaces

Church Point (NS), on 31 August 2020 – MP René Arsenault, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages (Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and Official Languages) today announced a contribution of $579,000 to support the modernization of learning spaces and technological infrastructure related to Université Sainte-Anne's Church Point campus. Université Sainte-Anne is matching this contribution in the amount of $616,000, for a total investment of $1.2 million in the project. The province of Nova Scotia also provides an important ongoing support that allows for the development of quality programs and innovative projects.

For Nova Scotia's students it has been a year of upheaval and uncertainty. From grade school to postsecondary, the COVID-19 pandemic has meant finding new ways to teach, to learn and to move education forward. Understandably, with the pandemic and its impacts top-of-mind, many students who planned to start or continue university studies this fall may be looking for opportunities to stay close to home—or even considering taking a year off.

Church Point (NS), June 4, 2020- Martin Marcoux, Chair of Université Sainte-Anne's Board of Governors, is pleased to announce that Allister Surette's mandate as President and Vice-Chancellor of Université Sainte-Anne has been renewed for an additional 5-year term. Mr. Surette has led the university since July 1, 2011 and will continue for an additional term starting July 1, 2021 until June 30, 2026.

Church Point (NS), April 29, 2020- The new Bursaries for Postsecondary Studies in French as a Second Language (FSL) Program aims at encouraging a greater number of young English-speaking Canadians to become bilingual, while studying in their field of interest.
