Study of Higher Education Statutory and Regulatory Requirements in Canada

Devry, Inc. (2009)

EPI was contracted to conduct a provincial-level study of statutory and regulatory requirements to confer online and on-site undergraduate and graduate degrees in Alberta, New Burnswick, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and British Columbia, Canada. To conduct this study, EPI reviewed government materials and interviewed experts in each province to gain an accurate account of the regulations and requirements for operation as a degree-granting institution. Information regarding the legal operation and credential granting, designation for financial aid, eligibility to receive clients with Labour Market Development Agreements (LMDA) program funding as well as the presence of any specific provincial funds for Aboriginal students was provided for each province. This report informed DeVry’s decision-making about whether to open physical or online sites in these provinces.
