EducationPlannerBC is a sector-led, government-supported initiative to improve the experience of

new students by creating a single online resource that makes it easy to search, plan and apply for public post-secondary education in British Columbia.

In 2015, the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training (AEST) initiated a dialogue with the public post-secondary sector to explore a common online application platform for students applying to public post-secondary education in B.C., similar to those used in other jurisdictions.

A Sector Advisory Committee held extensive meetings and produced a final report outlining 11 recommendations for the development of a common online solution for public post-secondary institutions in B.C. related to technology and resources, system elements and governance.

To actualize these recommendations, an interim governance structure  with representation from most of the 25 public post-secondary institutions, was established to provide guidance and inform this large-scale transformation project.

Each year, 66,000 new students are admitted to B.C.’s 25 public post-secondary institutions.
