Just like you, we want to connect students with the information they need to plan their best post-secondary education opportunities. By representing the top public post-secondary institutions in BC, we act as a central source of up-to-date and unbiased information for high school counsellors. We facilitate school visits and community events and connect with counsellors like you across the province.

Our membership base is large and doesn’t include private for-profit institutions, so you can rest assured that our resources and information will put students first. Consider us a partner in your work helping students to make excellent post-secondary choices
