The 38th session focused on a variety of issues, including the commission's 2016–17 budget; the Education 2030 agenda; preparation of a global convention on the recognition of higher-education qualifications; and two recommendations: one on adult education and one on technical and vocational education and training.
This toolkit was envisioned by the education and provincial-territorial labour market Ministers
at the Skills for the Future Symposium in July 2014, held in a response to a request from premiers
through the Council of the Federation. The toolkit is an opportunity for sharing promising practices
amongst provinces and territories and with the many stakeholders leading and supporting our

The Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program (PCEIP) is an ongoing initiative of the Canadian Education Statistics Council (CESC), a partnership between Statistics Canada and the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC), to provide a set of statistical measures on education systems in Canada. This fact sheet reports on postsecondary enrolment and graduation.
This report is the first in a new series of the Pan-Canadian Education Indicators Program (PCEIP). It allows readers to compare data for the provinces and territories with data for OECD countries. The indicators presented in this report are parallel to 10 of the indicators presented in the OECD publication Education at a Glance, 2009.
The 4th APEC Education Ministerial Meeting focused on the theme of "21st Century Competencies and Skills for All," and the four sub-themes of math and science, career and technical education, language learning, and information and communications technologies and systemic reform. This report details Canada's contributions and bilateral meetings during the event and provides the main discussion document.
Education in Canada is a document prepared and updated periodically by the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada (CMEC), that gives a current pan-Canadian overview of education. Its content is based on information compiled from Canada's 13 jurisdictions and deals with topics such as: governance, funding, education systems, language, teaching, public and private schools, pre-elementary/elementary/secondary/postsecondary institutions, statistics, attendance, regional differences, university degrees/college diplomas, vocational training, adult education, technology and education, Aboriginal education, the role of CMEC, and ministerial priorities for education. This document is used for general reference and is often included as an appendix to country reports on education topics.
This report brings forward the key points of discussion at the meeting, as well as summaries of the presentations on the themes "Skills for Tomorrow" and "Quality and Equity," including a presentation from Canada.
This report was prepared for the International Conference on Education (ICE) in 2004. At ICE, the implications for secondary education were considered in terms of qualitative expansion and greater access, but also in relation to other crucial aspects, such as the scope, function, quality, and relevance of secondary- education systems. Within this framework, the policies and practices of the educational jurisdictions across Canada are presented under the headings of gender equality, social inclusion, Aboriginal, immigrant, and special-needs students, flexibility and skills learning, human-values education, education for sustainable development, and the role of teachers.
This is an analysis of the key trends in education generally, as well as in K-12 and postsecondary education, and is followed by detailed reports from each jurisdiction.
This document gives an overview of major education activities in 1996 in the Canadian jurisdictions. It was prepared as a background document for the Second National Consultation on Education, organized by CMEC and held in Edmonton from May 9 to 12, 1996.
