The same may well be true of Canadian colleges. But neither the colleges
themselves nor the publics they serve will be able to document the value they
add to the education of their students or to the quality of life in their society

Community colleges evolved in Canada during the "golden years" of educational innovation between 1960 and 1975. A diversity of factors - historical, socio-economic, political and educational - contributed to the development of college systems with distinctive goals and structures. This book is the first up-to-date and comprehensive study of a potent national educational and social phenomenon, largely unknown and largely unappreciated. The authors describe provincial and territorial college systems as they have evolved to 1985, discussing problems particular to each system and evaluating the extent to which often idealistic early goals have been realized. They identify key issues which are critical to the future of these systems and which, if ignored, will undermine community college education across Canada. These include accessibility, identity, relations with governments, management and leadership, and evaluation and accountability. In each case the authors draw upon their own expertise and experience to describe directions for resolution of these issues. The book contains a comprehensive and topical bibliography of both published and unpublished material related to many aspects of Canadian community college development. It also includes a French language bibliography. Unique in many aspects, this book is designed to interest both graduate and undergraduate students in adult and higher education and administration as well as those directly involved in community colleges, government education ministries and a broad lay public.

In this thoughtful book, Howard C. Clark considers how such changes to growth and governance have altered the nature of the institution itself. Tracing the development of the university from the end of the Second World War, through the seismic changes in the 1960s and 70s, Clark argues that while the accomplishments of Canadian universities were remarkable during this period, they were ill prepared for the financial constraints of the 1980s and early 1990s. As a result, they were left in a state of institutional paralysis that has hindered their ability to adapt to the needs of a changing society.
In the 1970s, two advances in social work education were seen in Canada:
community college programs, and the offering of baccalaureate programs at universities. The rapid development of diploma programs in community colleges

All of us, as Canadians, are touched throughout our lives by some aspect of social welfare, either as recipients, donors, or taxpayers. But despite the importance of the social network in our country, there has been no single source of information about this critical component of our society. Even professionals in the field of social work or social services have not had a comprehensive volume addressing the myriad features of this critical societal structure. The Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work fills this need. Over five hundred topics important to Canadian social work are covered, written by a highly diverse group of social workers covering all aspects of the field and all areas of the country. Practitioners, policy makers, academics, social advocates, researchers, students, and administrators present a rich overview of the complexity and diversity of social work and social welfare as it exists in Canada. The principal finding from this project underscores the long-held perception that there is a Canadian model of social work that is unique and stands as a useful model to other countries. The Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work will be an important source of information, both to Canadians and to interested groups around the world. The Encyclopedia of Canadian Social Work is available in e-book version by subscription or from university and college libraries through the following vendors: Canadian Electronic Library, Ebrary, MyiLibrary, and Netlibrary.

Society, Schools and Progress in Canada is part of a series where society, schools, and progress in significant countries are discussed. The book gives a short history of Canada; the composition of its population; the changes that were made during the transformation of the country from an agricultural to industrial nation; and the search for education by the native and migrant Canadian in these times of change. The text traces the different people who migrated to Canada and to which regions they settled. The book also notes the significant roles of Canada internationally, especially with the United States and in the Commonwealth countries. The growth of the country economically, politically, and socially is analyzed. From education being an exclusively provincial matter, the author notes that the Federal Government played an increasing role to advancing education through legislation. The educational system of the country is then explained, covering the history of each educational level, the administration, and curriculum and special programs. The book also discusses the training of the different teachers needed for elementary, collegiate, vocational, and adult education. The role of television, radio, and computers toward advancing and spreading instructions and knowledge is also noted. The text also addresses the plans and reforms for the future, particularly with regard to administration of schools, curriculum, and international activities. The book is recommended for school administrators, educational system officials, historians, and foreign students and migrants to the west.
