History

The Academic Council of British Columbia was established in 1978 as a crown corporation under the Colleges and Provincial Institutes Act (SBC 1977, c. 67). The council replaced the former Academic Board for Higher Education, established in 1964 by an amendment to the Universities Act (SBC 1963, c. 52). The function of the Academic Council was to coordinate academic, technical, and career programs in community colleges and in other provincially funded training institutes. As well, the council monitored admission and transfer arrangements between colleges, institutes and universities. The Academic Council was abolished in 1983, at which time many of its duties were assumed by the Academic Technical Programs Branch of the Ministry of Education. In 1989, the new Ministry of Advanced Education and Job Training established the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfers to assume the functions of admissions and transfers.
