PESC & CANADA


The Canadian presence and influence within PESC has existed since the very formation of PESC.  As Canadian students cross provincial and international borders to attain their education, the need for institutions, software providers and systems vendors that support Canadian and international markets to ensure mobility and interoperability has never been greater.


The formation of the Canadian PESC User Group (CanPESC) in 2011 solidified the importance of Canada’s role within PESC and drew together many Canadians from across the country to work towards a common goal. Its main mission is twofold:


To encourage participation in PESC workgroups

developing PESC APPROVED STANDARDS


To promote and educate Canadian stakeholders on the

importance of data standards and interoperability,

thereby avoiding duplication of efforts,

costs and of data standards.


As the voice and official committee representing Canadian interests, CanPESC also serves in a liaison role. It coordinates and communicates its efforts across all provinces and territories, and works closely with Canadian organizations such as the Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC).



THE CANADIAN INFLUENCE AND HISTORY WITHIN PESC


In 1999 for PESC’s 1st Annual Best Practices Competition, the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC) was awarded 1st PLACE for its submission, “Ontario Universities Electronic Transcript System (OUETS): A Model of an Electronic Standardization Initiative."


In 2007, for PESC’s 10th Year Anniversary, the PESC Fall 2007 Data Summit was held at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Montreal.


In 2011, at the PESC Fall 2011 Data Summit held October 26, 2011 in San Francisco, PESC launched the Canadian PESC User Group.

In 2012, for PESC’s 14th Annual Best Practices Competition, the Ontario College Application Service (OCAS) was awarded 1st PLACE for its submission, “OCAS XML Transcript Initiative.”


In 2012, for PESC’s 15th Year Anniversary Year, the PESC Fall 2012 Data Summit was held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver.


From 2013-2015, OCAS' William McKee served on the PESC Board of Directors,


In 2013, through establishment of CanPESC, PESC entered into a formal MOU with ARUCC, allowing ARUCC and PESC to attend each other’s events without charge, thereby fostering a closer working relationship. 


In 2013and 2016, OUAC's Doug Holmes and OUAC's Leisa Wellsman, respectively, were recognized with PESC’s Distinguished Service Award.


In 2017, for PESC's 20th Year Anniversary, the PESC Fall 2017 Data Summit was held at the Radisson Waterfront Hotel in Toronto.


In 2018, at the PESC Fall 2018 Data Summit in San Francisco, Charmaine Hack, ARUCC Past-President and Chair of the ARUCC-GDN Student Mobility Project, served as Keynote Speaker.​​


In 2018/2019, for PESC's 20th Annual Best Practices Competition,  the Nova Scotia Council on Admission & Transfer (NSCAT) was awarded 1st PLACE for its submission, "MyTranscripts | Nova Scotia's Electronic Transcript & Data Exchange System."

In 
2019, EducationPlannerBC's's Cathy van Soest was recognized with PESC’s Distinguished Service Award.

In 
2019, in support of a new collaborative arrangement, the Fall 2019 Data Summit was held in Montreal at Le Centre Sheraton Montreal Hotel in Partnership with the Groningen Declaration Network. PESC's Summit hosted the Board of Directors of the Groningen Declaration Network, the Board of Directors of PESC, a day-long meeting of CanPESC at McGill University, the AACRAO SPEEDE Committee, a silent auction benefiting Indspire, and a day-long Retreat of the ARUCC/GDN & Student Mobility Project, in addition to General (Plenary) and Breakout Sessions.
