Canada needs better pathways to PSE credentials, says ACCC

April 29, 2011

In a new report, the Association of Canadian Community Colleges calls for clearer pathways to post-secondary credentials. The report states that while efforts across Canada and internationally have increased to improve student transferability and mobility, learners continue to face barriers as they move from one institution to another within the same jurisdiction, resulting in higher costs for students, institutions, and governments, and lost productivity for Canada as learners delay entry into the labour force. ACCC is working with key education stakeholders to develop a pan-Canadian framework that would define clear pathways for students as they progress through higher education.
