National Partnerships

Our national program and projects position colleges and institutes as solutions providers for economic, environmental, and societal issues.

We give colleges and institutes the opportunity to work together towards a common goal, to learn from each other, and maximize the impact of Canada’s largest post-secondary network.

When the system thrives, Canadians thrive. In everything we do, we aim to strengthen that system.

We are Canada’s skills solution. Our national programs and projects give learners of all ages the tools to meet labour market needs and help drive economic growth. We work across all sectors and give learners accessible opportunities to learn new skills, strengthen the skills they already have, and put their skills to use in new ways.
