OACC recommends revisions to Private Career Colleges Act

June 21, 2013

The Ontario Association of Career Colleges (OACC) has submitted a set of recommendations to the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities in preparation for the review of the current Private Career Colleges (PCC) Act (2005) set to take place this fall. The OACC recommendations include taking measures to ensure the quality standards of career colleges are maintained by requiring mandatory training for new operators, putting students first by increasing flexibility in program delivery, and creating an accredited career college category. The OACC recommendations will help create a PCC Act that “provides a strategic framework for the future and that enables innovative, creative growth to propel this province’s postsecondary education (PSE) system, and that of Canada, towards global competitiveness.” OACC News Release | OACC Report
