In 1997, the MPHEC released a study of the accessibility to post-secondary education and the equity of access. The purpose of this research was to better understand the dynamics at play for Maritime students when they decide to pursue or not pursue post-secondary education. Through this research, information was gathered to help the Commission, students, governments, and other stakeholders identify some of the barriers, potential and real, to post-secondary education, and derive possible solutions to alleviate some of these barriers.
