The centre says the closure will affect 12 administrative staff in Cornwallis.

[CORNWALLIS, NS] - The Pearson Peacekeeping Centre says it will close its Nova Scotia operation by year's end due to a lack of government funding.

The centre says the closure will affect 12 administrative staff in Cornwallis.

A statement on the centre's website says it will continue to operate from Ottawa.

The centre began operations in Cornwallis 17 years ago and has trained thousands of military and police personnel, along with civilians.

Centre president Suzanne Monaghan says in the statement the consolidation of operations in Ottawa will help cut costs.
