Provincial Postsecondary Systems and Arrangements for Credit Transfer.
British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer, Vancouver.
This document describes the structure of the postsecondary education system, the mechanisms to facilitate transfer and articulation, and the major instruments used to facilitate transfer and articulation for postsecondary institutions in the Canadian Provinces. According to this document, the British Columbia postsecondary educational school system consists of 27 differentiated, publicly funded postsecondary institutions. The British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT) facilitates the transfer articulation in British Columbia by publishing the British Columbia Transfer Guide and the Online Transfer Guide. Alberta offers a comprehensive range of learning opportunities through public, private and community based providers located around the province. The Alberta Council on Admissions and Transfer (ACAT) facilitates most of the guidelines for transfer arrangements between Alberta's postsecondary institutions, and publishes the Albert Transfer Guide to help guide people through the transfer agreements. Saskatchewan and Manitoba are also made up of a range of postsecondary institutions, however, they have yet to formulate a transfer guide. The Ontario postsecondary educational system is comprised of 25 public colleges of applied arts and technology (CAATs) and 19 other public universities-level institutions, and they use the College-University Consortium Council (CUCC) to guide their transfer arrangements. Quebec also has a range of postsecondary educational institutions and a postsecondary liaison committee who guides them. (JS)
