The Alberta Licensee has gathered a group of highly skilled individuals that will guide the College on a volunteer basis. The Board’s priority is to enable the mandate of the College, “Enabling equal access to affordable, high-quality, accessible education to all Canadians without barriers.”
These volunteers are termed as Governors and will provide their recommendations to the College, the president, admission and other staff on an as-needed basis for the best interest of the College and its learners.
These volunteers ensure that the relationships with the institution’s president, The Alberta Licensee and the Government of Alberta (which occurs primarily through the Minister) serve to help the institution fulfill its mandate and obligations within the Alberta Post-Vocational Act (PVA).
Any questions pertaining to policies, admissions, tuition or industry participation should be addressed to The Office of The Registrar. The Registrar’s Office is a web-based (online) office and can be reached by email at email@example.com
