COMMUNITY COLLEGE ACCREDITATION IN ALBERTA
Community college accreditation in Alberta is a form of independent certification that assures the quality standards of a school or program.

Canada does not have a national system of institutional accreditation; rather, education falls within the jurisdiction of the provincial governments. In order to offer degrees in Alberta, a community college needs to have been given degree-granting authority from the provincial ministry responsible for higher education. This, coupled with membership in the the national organization called the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC), is generally accepted as equivalent to institutional accreditation. Community colleges in Alberta may also choose to become members of a professional association like Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC), whose members must also adhere to certain standards of quality.

At the program level, community college programs are eligible for accreditation by professional accrediting agencies. Professional accreditation means a specific department or program has been evaluated as meeting the standards of the accrediting agency of a certain profession. Some accrediting agencies accredit college programs, and others accredit individual graduates of certain programs. Some examples of national agencies that accredit community college academic programs are:

  • Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs (CCAPP)

  • Canadian Forestry Accreditation Board (CFAB)

  • Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB)


  • Christian community colleges in Alberta can have separate accreditation from organizations such as The Association for Biblical Higher Education (ABHE) or The Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada (ATS).

    Why Accreditation?
    Accreditation assures you and your parents that the school's programs are delivered by qualified faculty and are up-to-date. A degree or other credential from an accredited school or program can help make you more competitive on the job market.
