Technology Professionals Canada is a dynamic partnership of provincial associations of technology professionals in Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan working together to achieve their full potential as self-regulating professional organizations.
Founded in 2010, TPC is responsible for delivering accreditation, professional registration and accountability in service to the public and members.
In developing a world-class accreditation model, TPC established Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC) to revitalize the national accreditation system and standards development practices.
The formation of TAC derived from a Canadian Standards Association report which looked at current technology accreditation practices, measured against best practices from other jurisdictions and sectors. The comprehensive, third party review identified opportunities for enhancement in the accreditation system and also provided TPC with advice on how to best serve the interest of its membership going forward.
TAC is committed to delivering a significantly improved and effective national accreditation system and has developed bylaws and incorporation documents that will serve as the new national accreditation model for college programs across Canada.
