Provincial governments retain an essentially unrestricted jurisdictional autonomy as regards the structuring and coordination of post-secondary education (PSE) systems. It is at the provincial level that crucial balances must be struck between the competing demands placed on costly PSE systems. This article develops a comparative historical analysis of the British Columbia and Ontario cases in this relatively neglected area of provincial public management. Strong path-dependent logics are identified in both cases, anchored in interconnected networks of institutional and local interests. Current developments in both provinces are assessed against the background of these longer-term historical patterns and in relation to wider international trends. [less ▲]

This paper examines the coordination of post-secondary education systems by provincial governments in British Columbia and Ontario as an area of “pure” provincial policy-making. The argument is developed in two broad stages. First, developments in the 1960s are examined as representing a “critical juncture” in which differing system architectures are shown to have taken shape in response to similar demographic pressures for a major expansion of post-secondary provision. Second, later attempts at reform are examined, demonstrating in both cases the relatively “sticky” character of the institutional settlements established in the 1960s. An interlocking pattern of institutional and intra-provincial local/regional resistance has created strong path dependent logics of development in both provinces. The paper concludes with a discussion of recent reform efforts in Ontario, potentially marking a new “critical juncture” in contrast to a relative quiescence in the case of BC. [less ▲]
