Introduction to Micro-Credentials

10. Micro-Credentials in Canada

One of the first initiatives in Canada is EcampusOntario who are in the process of piloting micro-credentials in several member institutions. Saskatchewan is also investigating micro-credentials and Alberta University of the Arts has a micro-credential in four different business areas relating to the arts. An informal pan Canadian micro-credential group is just getting started and this will be helpful as we try to determine how micro-credentials fits into Canada's post secondary education landscape.
