TORONTO – The Ontario and federal governments say they have reached an agreement on jointly funding a proposed French-language university that Premier Doug Ford's government had previously scrapped.

The two governments issued a statement Saturday evening saying they've signed a "memorandum of understanding" (MOU) that formally commits them to working together to establish the school.

The MOU says the fed's contribution to the project "will not exceed 50 per cent of the total cost incurred by Ontario," and that a joint working group will be established to figure out the funding details and timelines.
