Colleges and Institutes Canada

Election Watch

CICan worked hard to represent its members’ priorities during the fall election campaign and again during pre-budget consultations in the spring. In consultation with members, four advocacy priorities were identified: infrastructure, applied research and innovation, Indigenous education and creating job opportunities for all Canadians.

An election watch platform and series of advocacy tools were developed for members to support their local engagement efforts. Post-election, CICan created an MP guide to educate new and returning parliamentarians about the extraordinary role colleges and institutes play in their local communities and the national economy.
