The Department of Education, Culture and Employment (ECE) is taking important steps towards realizing expanding opportunities for postsecondary education in the Northwest Territories (NWT), including developing a new legislative framework to govern postsecondary education.
ECE recognizes the unique cultural, social, economic and geographic contexts which define postsecondary learning needs in the NWT, and is working to ensure that the new legislative framework will benefit all residents and institutions of the NWT, now and into the future.
For your information we have provided links below to the Governance of Postsecondary Education in the NWT Discussion Paper and the Executive Summary, which is a shorter, condensed version of the Discussion Paper.
If you have ideas about how postsecondary institutions should be recognized in the Northwest Territories in the future or would like to provide feedback on the proposed direction in the Discussion Paper, please click on the SUBMIT FEEDBACK button at the bottom of this page. Public feedback is open until April 13, 2018.
