Study Online with Canada's Leading Universities

After careful review and thought, the member institutions of the Canadian Virtual University-Université Virtuelle Canadienne (CVU-UVC) consortium have decided the time has come to end the consortium. CVU-UVC was formed in 2000, at a time when e-learning at public institutions was in its early years. The primary focus of CVU-UVC was to showcase and promote the online educational opportunities available for students across Canada. This was done by creating a central hub of the programs and course offerings available for students, as well as through the way the member universities worked together to facilitate the ease of transfer of credits for students.

CVU-UVC can be proud of its history and for leading the way in Canada in promoting the benefits of and access to online learning.  Today, the e-learning world is different. There is a plethora of choices available for students, with more and more institutions offering online and distance education. The work of the CVU-UVC, in regards to its original purpose, has been accomplished.

Former CVU-UVC member institutions remain committed to providing quality educational programming and responding to the needs of learners, as well as providing leadership in e-learning initiatives and online offerings.  

If you are interested in taking a course from one of the original member institutions (below), please contact that institution directly.
