Update on McGill’s financial situation


Message from Professor Anthony C. Masi, Provost

Dear members of the McGill community,

First, let me thank everyone who has helped limit spending over the last two and half months as we address the $20 million shortfall in government support this year, especially those who also submitted suggestions to budgetideas@mcgill.ca. We have so far received more than 150 suggestions for generating new revenues and/or reducing our operating expenses. I read all of the submissions received to date and am impressed with the careful thought and creativity that has gone into them. The address remains active and I encourage you to continue to send in your ideas. I will be sure to include them in our budget discussions for FY2016 which are ongoing.
