We are excited to announce that the Provincial Partnership Council is now the Council for Experiential Learning (CEL). This name change comes as a result of an in-depth engagement process with stakeholders and community partners. As part of the strategic plan that emerged from that process, we committed to choosing a new name that would allow us to engage the public and community partners more effectively. Our new name provides clarity about our role, and better reflects our mandate and primary strategic directions. We look forward to continuing this important work with a refreshed identity and renewed focus.

We promote the value of experiential learning and foster meaningful learning opportunities to help students succeed in the workplace of the future.
