Nova Scotia. Private Career College Board

Other forms of name:
Nova Scotia. Provincial Private Trade School Board (1989)

In 1989 the Trade Schools Regulation Act was amended and provision made for a Provincial Private Trade School Board to act as a review and advisory board on certification and registration of private trade schools and courses of study. It was also to recommend criteria for the establishment of standards governing the operation of private trade schools. In 1999 the Provincial Private Trade School Board was superseded by the Private Career College Board. The new board acted as an appeals tribunal from decisions of the minister suspending or cancelling registration or certification of private career colleges. The Private Career College Board Act was thoroughly revised in 2015. The board is now a division of the Department of Labour and Advanced Education.

Notes: Authority record based on Statutes of Nova Scotia: 1989 c. 35, 1998 c. 23, 2015 c.25.
