It is essential in the new economy that Ontario strengthen its efforts to promote career-focused programs. An important step would be expanding the range of degree programs at the province’s colleges. Ontario’s public colleges already offer four-year degree programs. However, this province is one of the few jurisdictions in the world where graduates of a three-year post-secondary program can only earn a diploma, rather than a degree. Expanding the range of degree programs at colleges will provide more options to students seeking career-focused higher learning. It will also address the growing demand among employers for graduates with degrees who also have career-specific qualifications. The government should introduce changes to allow Ontario colleges to offer three-year degree programs.
