Ontario Micro-Credentials Quality Framework

Ontario Micro-Credential: Harnessing the Potential Report

At the request of the Ontario Minister of Colleges and Universities, PEQAB is leading consultations on the development of a quality assurance framework for micro-credentials. The outcome of this process will result in a recommendation to the Minister in Fall of 2023.

The OMC: Harnessing the Potential report is an overview of the proposed framework developed through a literature review, environmental scan, key informant interviews and consultations with stakeholders. The proposed quality assurance framework seeks to harmonise understanding and provide transparency of micro-credential programming utilising existing policies and practices in Ontario's higher education system in order to recognise student achievement and support lifelong learning.

PEQAB is seeking feedback from a wide range of stakeholders on the perceived value, areas of concern, or issues of feasibility with the framework. We welcome written responses submitted to until September 30, 2023.

Public responses can be found here.
