A prominent Ontario think tank that reports on immigration, Indigenous education and other key issues says it will soon be going out of business after the provincial government cut its funding.

The 10-year-old Mowat Centre, a research organization at the University of Toronto, has recently examined issues such as the "uneven success" of the province's settlement of immigrants, the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous education and the differences between urban and rural Ontarians.

The Ford government found the centre useful enough to cite as a source of information in its recent provincial budget, in a section discussing manufacturing job losses in Southwestern Ontario.
