In the fall of 2012, representatives of key stakeholder groups, including Enterprise and Advanced Education, Community Learning Network, four Comprehensive Community Institutions, and the Alberta Rural Development Network (ARDN) participated in a research study entitled "Best Practices and Technical Recommendations for a Campus Alberta Needs Assessment System (CANAS)". Many community stakeholders were consulted during its development.
The purpose of the study was to assist Alberta’s CCIs and other adult learning service providers to conduct educational needs assessments, enable enhanced information sharing and knowledge transfer.
