Funding partners share cost of Law project

The addition to the College of Law is another University project that has seen its budget escalate through the planning process, in this case from about $9.2 million to $11.744 million, which includes a contingency and an allowance for potential market adjustment.

A report to the Board of Governors March 31 about the project said funding will be shared among four partners — $2.5 million from both the Law Foundation of Saskatchewan and the U of S Thinking the World of Our Future capital campaign, $3.5 million from the College, and $1.9 million from the Native Law Centre which will occupy space in the building. The centre will use both internal funding and external donations for its contribution, said the report. An additional $1.3 million from other sources which could include government programs and agencies, and private and corporate donations.

One government agency that has already contributed is Saskatchewan Justice, which announced April 3 it would provide a $100,000 grant to the project. In making the announcement, Justice Minister Frank Quennell described the contribution as “an investment in the future of our province.”
