Privately Funded Ontario Institutions with Degree-Granting Authority


Institutions in Ontario wishing to offer degrees, or programs leading to degrees, must comply with the Post-secondary Education Choice & Excellence Act 2000 which governs degree-granting Institutions. The Act prevents institutions from granting degrees, providing programs of postsecondary study leading to a degree, or being known as universities, unless they are so authorized by an Act of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario or have the consent of the Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities.

The following institutions have been granted restricted degree-granting authority by the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. Please contact the individual institutions or review their calendars to determine the specific degrees they are authorized to offer. To check on the degree-granting status in Ontario of any other postsecondary institution, please contact the Governance and Accountability Unit, Universities Branch, Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, at (416) 325-2653.
