This blog was established to offer information and analyses on higher education in Canada – and occasionally in the United States as well (thus the “Parallel 49″ reference). It provides observations and commentaries on undergraduate and graduate university education, and strives to becomes a reliable source of knowledge – a lighthouse of sorts in a stormy sea of data – on these topics. Particular attention is given to international studies (e.g., opportunities for international students in Canada), while at the same time assessing the state of the Canadian higher education in general.
