Statement Regarding Re-Structuring of the AMS
Following the Government of Ontario’s recent announcement regarding the new Student Choice Initiative, the AMS Board of Directors has had to make difficult decisions regarding the services and opportunities that we offer to students. This new change will likely introduce approximately a 40% budget cut for the fall of 2019. As such, in consultation with Assembly and students at large, the Board of Directors has re-structured the AMS government branch to ensure that we continue to provide services for students and a high level of advocacy while being financially sustainable. The Board of Directors based their decisions from the consultation at Emergency Assembly, the social value provided to students, the financial impact to the corporation, & the level of opportunities provided to students. After a thorough discussion at Assembly and at the Board of Directors, meet your new AMS Structure for 2019-2020!
