Who are we?

The Curriculum Developers' Affinity Group (CDAG) is made up of representatives from across Ontario's Community Colleges and their associates. In 2005, CDAG became an official Affinity Group of the Coordinating Committee of Vice Presidents Academic (CCVPA). The CDAG consists of one voting representative from each college, numerous representatives from each college and many affiliated (non-voting) members from across colleges and other groups.

Together, individuals from these groups represent our CDAG membership.

CDAG members include a wide range of individuals including those who support curriculum and quality assurance, as well as educational developers and specialists.

What do we do?

The mandate of the Group is to:

  1. Promote/contribute to quality curriculum in Ontario Colleges encompassing:
    1. Facilitation of ongoing collaboration and communication
    2. Sharing, developing and promoting best practices
    3. Promoting/encouraging curriculum-related research
    4. Advocating for communal strategies, products and resources to achieve system-wide efficiencies
    5. Making recommendations on educational policies and objectives of a province-wide nature where there are curriculum connections or implications
  2. Provide leadership in the ongoing development and sustainability of curriculum expertise in Ontario colleges
  3. Provide a forum to discuss, develop, and disseminate CDAG initiatives
  4. Establish, guide and oversee subcommittees reporting to CDAG


When did we start?

The Provincial Curriculum Developers Affinity Group (CDAG) has been operational since the fall of 2005.


What are some of the current Subcommittees within CDAG?
