Enhancing Access to Post-Secondary Education in Canada: An Exploration of Early Intervention Initiatives in Selected Countries

by Cheryll Duquette, Shari Orders

The accessibility of post-secondary education (PSE) has been identified as a key component of the social, economic, and cultural well-being of societies. A significant body of research has focused on the identification of PSE access barriers in the Canadian context; however, what governments, their partners, and PSE institutions might do to mitigate or overcome these barriers – particularly for those groups typically under-represented in PSE – is less understood.
