Language Resources and Canadian Universities
In Canada, education is a provincial responsibility. Consequently, there is no common national curriculum for educational institutions, be they schools, colleges or universities. At the university level, every Canadian university is free to establish its own programs and to hand out its own certificates and diplomas.
Most of the information on this page concerns post-secondary institutions that are members of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC). The AUCC represents 92 non-profit public and private universities and colleges. Some of these institutions have research centres or institutes that touch upon language issues. This page lists universities with specialized research facilities that have an Internet presence. While the list clearly is far from exhaustive, it provides a good idea of the kind of research currently under way in Canadian universities.
