Following Rick Miner's report, "GTA Post-Secondary Access Initiatives: Pointing the Way to Success" Access to Post-Secondary Education in the GTA, the current mandate of the NAE is to develop and implement a collaborative and coordinated approach among educational institutions to enhance access to PSET for all those who, without intervention and support, would not otherwise be able to access PSET.

As such, the NAE intends to facilitate greater knowledge and clarity about what access and outreach programs currently exist and increase opportunities for collaboration among them to achieve greater impact.

The NAE's work will focus on:

  • Conducting a system analysis of access and outreach programming to identify gaps in the system
  • Building capacity for collaboration and cooperation among our community of practice through coordinated communications, events and a redesigned and interactive website that serves as a hub of information for all access and outreach programming in Toronto.
