Information on Accreditation/Membership of Canadian Universities/Colleges in AUCC

Under the Canadian constitution, Canadian provinces have exclusive responsibility for all levels of education. Canada has no formal system of institutional accreditation. Membership in AUCC (http://www.aucc.ca/about-us/member-universities/membership-eligibility/) held in conjunction with a provincial charter, may be accepted in lieu of institutional accreditation.

Graduate programs and professional schools such as law, nursing, medicine and engineering have rigorous discipline-specific accreditation procedures.

If a university or college is not a member of AUCC, you can check its status through the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada. CMEC's Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials maintains a database of recognized and authorized postsecondary institutions on its website: http://www.cicic.ca/664/Directory-of-Universities-Colleges-and-Schools-in-Canada.

If you are planning studies for an occupation that requires professional or other certification by a provincial or national regulatory body, we recommend you check with that body that the program you plan to follow meets their standards.
