[en] Provincial governments retain an essentially unrestricted jurisdictional autonomy as regards the structuring and coordination of post-secondary education (PSE) systems. It is at the provincial level that crucial balances must be struck between the competing demands placed on costly PSE systems. This article develops a comparative historical analysis of the British Columbia and Ontario cases in this relatively neglected area of provincial public management. Strong path-dependent logics are identified in both cases, anchored in interconnected networks of institutional and local interests. Current developments in both provinces are assessed against the background of these longer-term historical patterns and in relation to wider international trends.
[fr] Les gouvernements provinciaux retiennent une autonomie juridictionnelle essentiellement sans restrictions en ce qui concerne la structuration et la coordination des systèmes d’enseignement post-secondaire. C’est au niveau provincial que les équilibres cruciaux doivent être établis entre les demandes concurrentielles auxquelles ces systèmes coûteux doivent faire face. Cet article présente une analyse historique comparée des cas de la Colombie-Britannique et de l’Ontario qui aborde ce domaine relativement négligé de la gestion publique provinciale. De fortes logiques de « dépendance au sentier » sont identifiées dans les deux cas, ancrées dans des réseaux interconnectés d’intérêts institutionnels et locaux. Les enjeux actuels des systèmes post-secondaires dans les deux provinces sont évalués par rapport à leurs trajets historiques et en les comparant aux tendances internationales plus larges.
