The Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC) Strategic Focus priorities for 2005-2006 included Aboriginal peoples’ access to post-secondary education, and enhancing student success support mechanisms in colleges and institutes which are grounded in Aboriginal values, culture and tradition.

In April and May 2005, ACCC initiated a study on Aboriginal programs and services at colleges and institutes. The study included a literature review, an on-line survey for mainstream ACCC member colleges and institutes, and interviews with representatives from Aboriginal and northern ACCC member colleges and institutes, and the Aboriginal Institutes Consortium, an Associate Member of ACCC.

This report provides an overview of Aboriginal post-secondary education trends in Canada drawn from 2001 Census data and gives an overview of the current barriers to Aboriginal learners’ participation in post-secondary education.

Series: Canadian Colleges & Institutes

Authors: The Association of Canadian Community Colleges

Collection: Research Materials

The Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC) conducted a diagnostic survey of Canadian colleges and institutes programs and services for immigrants, organized a College and Institute Immigration Roundtable, and developed a section of the ACCC website that profiles the types of programs and services immigrants can access through colleges and institutes.

The results of this diagnostic survey provide a snapshot of how colleges and institutes are meeting the needs of immigrants within their communities, including initiatives that facilitate foreign credential recognition. This report also provides an overview of the barriers faced by colleges and institutes in delivering these services, the barriers faced by immigrants trying to access these programs and services, and the lessons learned.
