About the Employer

Established in 2011, the Ontario Council on Articulation and Transfer (ONCAT) was created to enhance academic pathways and reduce barriers for students looking to transfer among Ontario’s 45 publicly funded colleges and universities. As a member organization, it works with those institutions to develop transfer credit policies and practices to ease student mobility.

About the Position


ONCAT is interested in reviewing all ONCAT funded research projects and pathway development projects to scan for themes, gaps, recurring issues, and potential for future work for the purpose of advancing the Ontario credit transfer system. We are looking for an independent researcher who can help ONCAT produce a report reviewing the findings of ONCAT funded research alongside a broader literature review and environmental scan of best credit transfer practices in other jurisdictions within Canada and internationally.

The information generated in the report will represent a significant learning resource to the sector, as it will bring together examples, tools, and experiences from Ontario on credit transfer and articulation. Furthermore, the report will contextualise the work that ONCAT has funded in the broader landscape of credit transfer and student mobility. The report will be posted on our website as part of ONCAT’s research.

The researcher will be hired as an independent contractor and will not be an ONCAT employee.
