PSBC, formed in 1974, is an informal collaborative of recruitment offices from BC public post-secondary institutions. Regular Membership in PSBC is only open to publicly funded universities, colleges and institutes in the province of British Columbia. Regular Membership is also considered for publicly funded agencies or departments of a government Ministry directly involved in the delivery of post-secondary education and training. All PSBC members are required to abide by the PSBC Code of Conduct, and membership in PSBC can be revoked at any time at the discretion of the Executive Committee.
A limited number of private, non-profit institutions in BC may be considered for membership if they are members of at least one of the two national post-secondary organizations in Canada: Universities Canada or CICan (Colleges and Institutes Canada). Private for-profit institutions are not eligible for membership and total membership in PSBC is limited to 30, based on the limitations of high schools to accommodate large numbers of institutions during the annual fall schedule.
PSBC exists solely to provide students and high school counsellors in BC with information about options in the public post-secondary education. For over 40 years the program has co-ordinated a fall schedule of visits to BC high schools to provide Grade 11 and 12 students and high school counsellors with updated information from member institutions to assist them with planning for post-secondary study.
School visits take place between mid-September and early December. The schedule is managed online on this closed website to provide you – our members – with all the information you need to participate. Under no circumstances are member institutions allowed to share access to this website, or share any of the information on this website with individuals or institutions who are not members of PSBC. All member institutions and their representatives are also expected to abide by the regulations governing the appropriate use of data, per CASL, as outlined in the PSBC Code of Conduct.
PSBC members can make relevant program and event information from their own institution available to counsellors, students and parents on our public website: www.postsecondarybc.ca
