British Columbia has a rich history of accessible adult education programs. In recent years, these programs have undergone significant changes. Most recently, in August 2017, a tuition-free policy for domestic students in Adult Basic Education and English Language Learning programs at Public Post Secondary Institutions was implemented.
The elimination of tuition fees is aimed at improving access, allowing more students to gain the required skills to pursue their personal, education, training and employment goals. Learn more about the BC Adult Education Policy Framework.
