The Commission on Post-Secondary Education in New Brunswick
has now completed its work. Its final report has been published on September 14, 2007.

The highlights of the report include:

  • the creation of the first integrated student-focused post-secondary education system in Canada
  • the establishment of a new arms-length coordinating agency - the New Brunswick Post-Secondary Education Commission - responsible for quality assurance, credit transfer and an information portal, among other items,
  • the creation of a new kind of institution: the polytechnic,
  • the operation of NBCC-CCNB outside the provincial government,
  • major improvements to student aid and university funding including research.

From January to September 2007, the Commission on Post-Secondary Education in New Brunswick has been an ideal forum to discuss ways to meet the post-secondary education challenges in the province.

Its mandate was to look into all aspects of post-secondary education in order to make recommendations on the future direction of this sector.

To achieve this, the commission:

  • gathered and summarized data relevant to a broad range of post-secondary education and training issues in the province;
  • wrote and released a discussion paper that served as a starting point for consultations;
  • consulted with students, post-secondary education stakeholders and the public;
  • examined the findings and recommendations from other provincial commissions, and
  • considered best practices throughout Canada and elsewhere in the world.

Many students, post-secondary education stakeholders and the public submitted briefs and sent us their comments.
