The Ministry of Advanced Education has not renewed the registration of the Saskatoon School of Horticulture Inc. for 2019-20 and has directed the school to cease operation as a Category I school in Saskatchewan.
The school has demonstrated a pattern of non-compliance with The Private Vocational Schools Regulation Act, 1995 and The Private Vocational Schools Regulations, 2014. The Ministry of Advanced Education regulates private vocational schools so that students are protected and the public may have confidence that students are trained by an institution that: is financially stable; offers quality curriculum and instruction; and prepares students for the workforce in an environment that supports their success. Non-renewal of the Certificate of Registration prevents the school from accepting new students into registered programs and prevents students from applying for student loans. The Ministry will be contacting affected students and will make every effort to minimize the impact on students.
