Landscape Of Post-Secondary Education In the Maritimes Has Changed

With an aging population and fewer youth graduating from high school, groups like the Maritime Provinces Higher Education Commission are treading unknown territory when it comes to post-secondary education in this day and age. 

C-E-O Mireille Duguay says they are only beginning to scope out what needs to be done in that sector, saying there are a lot of questions that are still up in the air. She tells CHSJ News it's a very different population that needs to be served now than in the past, and a lot of changes are happening across the board.
