How Canada can strengthen its position in postsecondary education: Opinion

January 13, 2022
A new article from Contact North discusses the steps Canada can take to build on previous successes and continue to strengthen its postsecondary education system. Contact North encourages Canada to create a CanadaLearn portal to improve the accessibility and ease of the postsecondary application process and fund a national centre for competency and knowledge assessment so that individuals can have their prior learning recognized. The authors also encourage Canada to refocus on apprenticeship and competencies, initiate an approach to credentials that funds outcomes, and strengthen postsecondary instruction by certifying teachers.
