Launched in 2015, the Business/Higher Education Roundtable represents some of Canada’s largest companies and leading post-secondary institutions. Although partnerships between higher education and industry have existed in other countries – including the U.K., U.S. and Australia – for decades, Canada has lacked a coordinated strategy to strengthening cooperation between employers and educators. BHER harnesses the strengths of some of Canada’s top businesses, universities and colleges to deepen collaboration and improve opportunities for young Canadians.
