Public - Private College Partnerships: Best partnership arrangements for International Students

Public college-private partnerships (PPP) are no longer a new term in the Canada Education system. These partnerships will allow Canada to attract and train more international students who will contribute to the workforce, helping to bolster Ontario’s economy and offset the province’s declining domestic student population. This article will get a better understanding of the PPP definition and what partnerships bring the best benefits to international students.

Before we jump to the meaning and the benefits of the PPP to international students, we should understand the difference between Public College and Private College.

Public College vs Private College

Public College

Public colleges (or community colleges) are primarily funded by a national or state government and the public. There are a larger range of courses on offer at public colleges though they are known to have larger class sizes. However, the cost of attending such an institution is subsidized by the government.

Private College

By contrast, Private colleges do not receive funding from the federal or their provincial governments and rely solely on tuition fees to operate. Courses offered by private colleges are generally smaller in number in terms of students and the variety of courses offered. 

So, Public-private College partnerships (PPP) is a contractual arrangement between a public college of applied arts and technology in Ontario and a third party for the delivery, by the third party, of college programs leading to an Ontario College Credential. Third Party means an independent legal entity other than a college of applied arts and technology, publicly-assisted university or Indigenous Institute prescribed under the Indigenous Institutes Act, 2017. In short, this is a partnership between a Public College and a Private College.

The students enrolled in such programs are students of the college, and colleges are responsible for ensuring that partnership locations operate with the same student protections and standards of services, accountability, and quality assurance as college home campuses.

2. International Students' benefits in Public - Private College partnerships

  • International students with a credential from an Ontario public college may apply for a work permit for up to three years under the federal Post-Graduation Work Permit Program, issued by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.
  • International students enrolled in programs offered through public college-private partnerships are entitled to all the rights and privileges afforded to other students of the college; also access to the appropriate range of student supports, either on the partnership campus, in the community, or through the college’s main campus. This includes housing.
  • Students gain the skills they need to join Ontario’s growing workforce
