Council of Ministers of Education, Canada

The Council of Ministers of Education, Canada, is an intergovernmental body founded in 1967 by ministers of education to serve as:

 

• a forum to discuss policy issues;

• a mechanism through which to undertake activities, projects, and initiatives in areas of mutual interest;

• a means by which to consult and cooperate with national education organizations and the federal government; and

• an instrument to represent the education interests of the provinces and territories internationally.

 

CMEC provides leadership in education at the pan-Canadian and international levels and contributes to the exercise of the exclusive jurisdiction of provinces and territories over education.
