Our members are called Regulated Career Colleges for a reason. Canada’s regulated career colleges are subject to stringent regulations and operate under a similar set of rules as public institutions, ensuring a standardized quality of education. The approval process for their programs is rigorous and ensures that students receive credible and recognized qualifications, taught by qualified and knowledgeable instructors.

Michael McAllister, Directeur General at Collège Herzing, Montréal, points out in this video that, despite this similar regulatory environment, regulated career colleges do not compete with public education institutions. Rather, they complement this part of Canada’s post-secondary landscape by providing an alternative path for individuals whose circumstances may not permit them to pursue traditional public education.

Choosing a regulated career college can be a viable and valuable option for those seeking practical and industry-specific skills. By being made aware of the regulatory environment that ensures quality in regulated career colleges, Canadians can make informed decisions about their education and career paths. Cooperation between public and private educational institutions can create a well-rounded and inclusive education system, ultimately benefiting individuals, industries, and the nation as a whole.
