Universities in Canada's provinces and territories

In Canada, the constitutional responsibility for universities rests with the provinces and territories. The decision to assign responsibility for universities to local legislatures was enacted as law in the British North America Act in 1867, later renamed the Constitution Act in 1982; it states: "in and for each Province, the Legislature may exclusively make laws in relation to Education."[1] As a result of this constitutional agreement, a distinctive system of higher education has evolved in each province.[2] An exception to provincial level university structure is the arrangement for the aboriginal peoples in Canada. As the constitutional responsibility for Aboriginal Peoples with Treaty Status rests with the federal government of Canada under the Constitution Act of 1982, the federal government is largely responsible for funding higher education opportunities for Aboriginal learners.[3]

The Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC), an organisation composed of Canadian universities, defines two distinct types of post-secondary institutions in Canada: universities and colleges. Universities grant university degrees, which include bachelor's degrees, master's degrees, and doctoral degrees; and colleges, also known as community colleges, provide diplomas.[4] In some cases, universities must be a member of AUCC to be able to grant university degrees.[5] However, in other provinces membership is no guarantee of university status. Provincial and territorial governments provide the majority of funding to their public universities, with the remainder of funding coming from the federal government,[6] tuition fees, and research grants.[7] The primary variation between universities in the provinces is the amount of funding they receive. Universities in Quebec receive the most funding and have the lowest tuition fees, while universities in Atlantic Canada generally receive the least funding.[7] Among G7 countries, Canada has the highest proportion of post-secondary education graduates in the workforce. It also has one of the highest percentage of university graduates in the workforce, with 22%.[8] There are approximately 1.2 million university students in Canada based on the totals below.

There are 83 universities in Canada that are independent post-secondary education institutions with degree-granting authority.[citation needed] Seven of these universities are in Montreal, Quebec, the most of any Canadian city. Since 2008, there are five recognized universities within Metro Vancouver. Six are in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Five of these universities have campuses in Toronto, Ontario, the most populous city in the country. Three universities are in Ottawa, the country's capital city. The oldest university in Canada, Université Laval, was established in 1663 as a seminary and was granted a Royal Charter conferring university status in 1852. Quest University is the smallest university in the country, with 80 students, and the University of Quebec system is the largest, with 87,000 students.

Alberta

The University of Alberta has the 2nd largest provincial student enrollment.

There are five universities in Alberta, thirteen public colleges (one of which grants degrees[citation needed]), and seven private colleges (all of which grant degrees). Most private colleges refer to themselves as "university colleges", but are not legally universities, although they grant equivalent degrees.[9] Post-secondary education in Alberta is regulated by the Ministry of Advanced Education and Technology.[9] There are two universities in Calgary: University of Calgary and Mount Royal University (although the University of Lethbridge has a campus downtown as well). Edmonton, the province's capital city, is home to the University of Alberta, the province's oldest and largest university.

In 2009, a bill was passed by the Alberta legislature that allowed the two public colleges that offered degrees (MacEwan College in Edmonton and Mount Royal College in Calgary) to rename themselves universities.[10] Mount Royal College was renamed Mount Royal University on September 3, 2009 [11] and Grant MacEwan College became Grant MacEwan University on September 24, 2009.[12]

University of Victoria, 29 sept 2007, 2

There are four research-intensive universities in the Canadian province of British Columbia: University of British Columbia, University of Victoria, Simon Fraser University, and University of Northern British Columbia. In total, there are eleven public universities and four private universities in British Columbia. New degree programs for all British Columbia post-secondary education institutions must be approved by the Ministry of Regional Economic and Skills Development (colleges and institutes) or Ministry of Science and Universities (universities). The Ministry of Science and Universities must also give consent to private institutions to grant degrees in British Columbia and use the word "university" for educational purposes.[19] Six of these universities – Capilano University, Emily Carr University of Art and Design, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Simon Fraser University, and the University of British Columbia – are in the Metro Vancouver region, the most populated region of British Columbia, and four of them – Vancouver Island University, Royal Roads University, the University of Victoria, and the University Canada West – are on Vancouver Island. Two public universities, Capilano University and Kwantlen Polytechnic University, and one private university, Quest University, are primarily undergraduate institutions.

The oldest university in the province is the University of British Columbia, established in 1908[20], followed by the University of Victoria, also established in 1908. Five institutions in British Columbia were officially designated as universities on September 1, 2008:[21] Capilano University, Emily Carr University of Art and Design, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, the University of the Fraser Valley, and Vancouver Island University. University enrollment in British Columbia ranges from Quest University with 80 students to the University of British Columbia with 45,484 students.

The biggest provider of online and distance education in BC is Thompson Rivers University, Open Learning (TRU-OL). With over 400 individual courses and more than 57 programs available for completion by distance and online learning, students can take a variety of programs such as: adult secondary school completion; certificates and diplomas, including advanced and post-baccalaureate; associate degrees; and bachelor's degrees. Considering distance students, Thompson Rivers University's enrolment is 22,036 (8964 of which is distance).

New Brunswick

The University of New Brunswick has the largest student enrollment in the province.

There are seven chartered universities in New Brunswick; four public universities,[37] governed by the Ministry of Post Secondary Education, Training and Labour,[44] and three private institutions with religious affiliation. New Brunswick holds the distinctions of having the first English-language university in Canada and the first public university in North America, (the University of New Brunswick);[45] and also the first university in the British Empire to have award a bachelor's degree to a woman, (Mount Allison University) in 1875..[46] St. Thomas University and University of New Brunswick have campuses in the province's capital of Fredericton and UNB also maintains a campus in Saint John. St. Thomas University is the only public university in the province that does not offer graduate-level programs. Established in 1785, the University of New Brunswick is the oldest public in the province, and the Université de Moncton is the newest, formed in 1963. Public university enrollment ranges from Mount Allison University with 2,486 students to the University of New Brunswick with 10,587 students. Of the three private universities, Crandall University is the most ambitious and provides degrees in arts, sciences, education, business and religious studies. A recently announced $24 million expansion at Crandall will provide for three new buildings on campus and will allow enrollment to expand to 1,200.

Nova Scotia

The University of King's College is the oldest university in Nova Scotia.

There are 11 universities in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia.[52] Six of these universities – the Atlantic School of Theology, Dalhousie University, Mount Saint Vincent University, the NSCAD University, Saint Mary's University, and the University of King's College – are located in the Halifax Regional Municipality, which is the capital of Nova Scotia and the largest urban area in the Atlantic Canada region. The oldest university in the province is the University of King's College, established in 1789, and the newest university is Cape Breton University, established in 1974. University student enrolment in Nova Scotia ranges from the Atlantic School of Theology with 125 students to Dalhousie University with 15,970 students.

Several universities in Nova Scotia have strong religious connections. The University of King's College, first founded in Windsor, holds the distinction of being the first college with university powers in British North America, at a time when Upper Canada had no government of its own. It has always remained under the control of the Church of England. Dalhousie University, first known as Dalhousie College, was established in Halifax in 1820 with the help of the Presbyterian Church, and Acadia University was founded by Baptists. Catholics formed both Saint Mary's University and Saint Francis Xavier University.[53]

Prince Edward Island

There is one university in Prince Edward Island that is authorized to grant degrees.[37] Higher education in the province falls under the jurisdiction of the Higher Education and Corporate Services Branch within the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.[82] The only university in the province, the University of Prince Edward Island, is in the province's capital of Charlottetown. The institution resulted from an amalgamation of Prince of Wales College, a former university college founded in 1834, and Saint Dunstan's University, founded in 1855.[83]

Quebec

Map of Quebec, Canada, showing the locations of university main campuses
Université de Montréal has the largest undergraduate student enrollment in Quebec.

There are 17 universities in the largely French-speaking Canadian province of Quebec. Of the 17 universities, 14 are francophone and three are anglophone, all of them accredited by the Conférence des recteurs et des principaux des universités de Québec.[84] Seven of these universities – Concordia University, École de technologie supérieure, École Polytechnique de Montréal, HEC Montréal, McGill University, Université de Montréal, and Université du Québec à Montréal – are located in Montreal, the most populated city in Quebec, and three of them – École nationale d'administration publique, Institut national de la recherche scientifique, and Université Laval – are based in Quebec City, the province's capital. The Institut national de la recherche scientifique and École nationale d'administration publique do not have undergraduate level programs.

The oldest university in the province is Université Laval, established in 1663. Two institutions, both established in 1974, are the most recently designated universities in Quebec: École de technologie supérieure and Concordia University. University enrollment in Quebec ranges from Institut national de la recherche scientifique with 480 students to Université de Montréal with 55 540 students.

Saskatchewan

The First Nations University of Canada is the newest university in the province.

There are three universities in Saskatchewan.[37] The Government of Saskatchewan must establish statutes individually to degree-granting universities; these statutes outline the authority of each institution, their regulations, and bylaws.[102] The First Nations University of Canada and the University of Regina are both in Regina, the province's capital, and the University of Saskatchewan is in Saskatoon, the most populous city in Saskatchewan. The University of Saskatchewan is the oldest university in the province, founded in 1907, and the First Nations University of Canada is the newest, established in 1976. The University of Saskatchewan is also the largest university in Saskatchewan with 18,620 students, and the First Nations University of Canada (FNUC) is the smallest with 840 students. The First Nations University is the only Canadian university that caters to the needs of First Nations students. It was originally called the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations, and once formed, it entered into a federated agreement with the University of Regina to create the Saskatchewan Indian Federated College (SIFC). This Agreement allowed FNUC to become an independently administered university-college that served First Nations students.[103] The First Nations University of Canada is the only university in the province that does not offer graduate-level programs.
