Agencies

Public agencies, such as boards and councils, play a vital role in advancing the priorities of Innovation and Advanced Education and supporting the businesses of Campus Alberta and Alberta Innovates. They do this by

  • providing coordination, planning and policy advice to the Minister
  • governing institutions and corporations
  • providing services to the public

Although they operate with varying levels of autonomy, all report to the Minister. Learn more about these agencies:
