Who Should Invest in the Centre for Skills and Post-Secondary Education?

The SPSE will appeal to investors from both the public and private sectors. Membership from a range of these organizations will help to ensure that a balanced and holistic approach is adopted.

Public sector organizations have a strong interest in the future of Canada’s PSE sector and the skills that it produces. They are responsible for the policy and regulatory environment in which the sector operates. In addition, they understand the inter-connections between PSE, skills, and Canada’s economic and social systems. They are also familiar with the complexities and inter-relationships among federal departments and among these departments and their provincial counterparts.

Private sector firms have a strong interest in PSE’s future because it produces the skilled people they employ, and provides expertise that can be brought to bear in supporting corporate R&D, management, and innovation. As a source of advanced skills and expertise, the PSE system is fundamentally important to firm-level performance and competitiveness, both domestically and internationally.

Investment Levels

The Centre will be funded through membership fees from participating organizations. Centre members will include post-secondary institutions, foundations, governments, businesses and key partners from the not-for-profit sector. Investors will be asked to commit for an initial three-year period, at one of three annual levels.
