Education in Canada is exclusively a provincial responsibility: we do not have a formal federal presence to connect open activities on a national level. At BCcampus, we have created strong and successful relationships with groups in other provinces to propel the use of open across the country, benefiting students from Victoria to St. John’s, and everywhere in between.
Join the open community
To facilitate and enable the discussion across Canada, we initiated a national working group. Canada OER is comprised of participants from open education initiatives across the country, meeting bi-monthly to share information and promote open education. The goal of the group is to improve access to higher education for students in Canada.
To join the Canada OER Group or to let us know of an open education project happening in your institution, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
