About the Conference

Education is a lifelong endeavour – from early childhood to later life learning – and there are transitions at every turn. HEQCO’s 6th annual conference crossed borders, sectors and silos for the best thinking on how our education sectors could work together to improve educational access, enhance quality and ensure that Canadians have the knowledge and skills they need for success.  It was time for a national conversation. We explored areas of common concern at each stage of the learning process.
