OLDS – The provincial government announced in its budget 2024 release Thursday that Olds College will be getting tens of millions of dollars to expand student spaces.

The province is providing $63 million in capital funding over the next three years for Olds College to renovate and expand student spaces in the WJ Elliot Building.

“The Alberta Advantage is back and booming, and people from across Canada and around the world are once again flocking to our incredible province. This of course puts added pressures on our schools, and our government is ready to help,” said Demetrios Nicolaides, minister of Alberta Education in announcing budget 2024 priorities.

The province estimates Olds College will get $13 million from the 2024-25 budget, $25 million from the 2025-26 budget and $25 million from the 2026-27 budget for the WJ Elliot Building expansion.

More details are expected to come.
