Helping Canada progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals

Our work on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) continued this year, receiving a new and expanded presence on our website, and via our many projects. To help our members support sustainable development, we launched the SDG Toolkit for Canadian Colleges and Institutes in September. This practical guide was made available to all post-secondary institutions as an open educational resource and will serve as an evergreen tool that colleges and institutes can continue developing. It includes valuable information about the SDGs, tips on how to implement them in post-secondary contexts as well as best-practices and resources.

Additionally, we added a new category to our annual Awards of Excellence program to recognize and celebrate colleges and institutes that have shown remarkable leadership in the implementation and advancement of the SDGs. Finally, we signed on to the SDG Accord, joining an international network of postsecondary institutions and stakeholders committed to the goals.
