2017 was a big year for Canada as it celebrated its long history in which education has played an essential role, with our members profoundly linked to the development of their communities dating back well before confederation. To highlight the contribution of colleges and institutes to Canada, we produced a timeline and a website showcasing success stories from across the country.
Launched in collaboration with our regional counterparts (Fédération des cégeps, Colleges Ontario, BC Colleges, and Atlantic Colleges Atlantique – formerly the Atlantic Provinces Community College Consortium), the project compiled a total of 843 college and institute success stories across 10 categories. A new category in this 150 National Anthology was launched on CICan’s Canada 150 website each month of 2017. By the end of the year, the site had received over 14,000 visits.
