Wilfrid Laurier University Act



Post-secondary education falls under the jurisdiction of the provincial governments in Canada and publicly-funded institutions require legislative approval from the provincial government to grant degrees. The Wilfrid Laurier University Act, 1973, is the legislation passed by the Ontario provincial government approving Wilfrid Laurier University as a degree-granting institution.

A full copy of the Act with amendments can be found HERE

Additionally, universities in Canada strive to attain membership with the Association of Universities and Colleges (AUCC). In order to be a member of AUCC, certain criteria must be met. For more information on AUCC, please review its web site at http://www.aucc.ca.
