This means that at least 14 students from Canada will be able to participate in the north2north program during the 2007/2008 academic year.
Human Resources and Social Development Canada will be providing an additional $110,250 Canadian over the period of June 1, 2007 to March 31, 2008.
The extension will permit continued Canadian participation in the north2north program until a long-term funding solution can be worked out.
