Opinion of the IGOPP : Bill 44c and Bill 38

Act to amend the General and Vocational Colleges Act with respect to Governance.

For the purposes of the Parliamentary committee on the governance of the Vocational Colleges and Universities, IGOPP have submitted two memorandum stating that good governance is the best safeguard for the autonomy of the colleges and the universities : the legitimity and the credibility of the board is the best guarantee that this autonomy will prevail againts the assaults and the attempted intrusions in the pending business of the colleges and the universities.

Like the Chairman of the board of directors of the IGPPO have often said : « there is no autonomy without good governance and no good governance without autonomy » (Allaire, Y., 2004 : 2006)
