Saskatchewan Polytechnic is giving layoff notices to some employees and shutting down the printing services departments at the Moose Jaw and Prince Albert Campuses.
The closure of the two campus print shops were noted in an internal memo obtained by the Moose Jaw Independent. Printing duties for the two campuses will be sent to Saskatoon and Regina.
Saskatchewan Polytech provided a statement on the closure Friday afternoon.
“Saskatchewan Polytechnic regularly conducts an operational review to ensure program alignment with current market demand, operating efficiencies and budget accountability,” the statement stated.
As part of the review, eight full-time and part-time academic and professional services employees across Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s four campus locations received layoff notices.

“These changes represent a reduction of 7.25 FTEs, which is less than one per cent of Sask Polytech’s workforce. It is critical that we remain focused on the future and on our mission to inspire success in every learning journey,” the statement said.
Sask Polytechnic declined to share which positions, departments or programs would be impacted citing employee privacy.
