Nova Scotia's auditor general says the funding formula for the province's 10 universities hasn't been updated since 2011. Michael Pickup says the formula is based on old enrolment data. He says the Advanced Education Department told him it is concerned potential changes could mean less money for schools. Advanced Education Minister Kelly Regan says the formula question is being addressed. (Regan says a new funding formula is expected to be part of a new memorandum of understanding with universities, which she expects will be ready by the end of this year.)
