Niagara College waiting to hear if it will receive funding boost

The province is expected to announce today that it's going to invest $50 million in Ontario's publicly-assisted colleges.
    
Advanced Education Minister Deb Matthews will be at George Brown College in Toronto to make the announcement.
    
The government says the money will help fund initiatives including specialized teaching software, new lab and shop equipment and efforts to modernize existing classrooms and labs.
   
 About 220,000 students are enrolled full-time at the 24 publicly-assisted colleges in the province.
