Marsh, D. T.
This paper, written as the result of a two-month study visit to Alberta during May and June, 1984, attempts to describe the broad provision for education and vocational training in the postsecondary system. The paper is organized in five sections. It begins with an overview of the educational system of Canada as a whole, including the role of the federal government and a description of education on all levels from elementary through postsecondary. The second section of the paper describes the administration of postsecondary institutions in Alberta and the legislative framework for education, while the third section describes the educational institutions established in the Province. (These institutions include universities, affiliated and non-affiliated independent colleges, technical institutes, public colleges, vocational centers, community vocational centers, community vocational consortia, and private vocational schools.) Apprenticeship and training programs are the subject of the fourth section, while the final section focuses on a discussion of issues surrounding education in Alberta. Appendixes to the report describe student funding sources. (KC)
