Reaching New Heights: Differentiation and Transformation in Higher Education
Colleges Ontario
The priority for the Ontario government--for its economic ministries, its education ministries, and for the entire government--must be economic growth and helping more people find good jobs. This is particularly important for the province's young people. Far too many young people are unemployed or underemployed and are giving up hope of finding rewarding success in meaningful careers. It will be essential for the government to explore new ways to promote economic growth and create jobs. There must be more opportunities for people to fulfill their potential and utilize their strengths, allowing them to make a significant contribution to the province's overall growth and prosperity. At the same time, job growth must be accompanied by substantive reforms that ensure the people seeking work have the right talents and skills to successfully fill the new positions that are created. The government must address the skills mismatch that employers and many experts say is hurting the economy. In this report Ontario's public colleges responded to the provincial government's consultations on differentiation in the sector and recommended measures to improve post-secondary education.
