In Without a Roadmap: Government Funding and Regulation of Canada's Universities and Colleges, Snowdon, President, of Snowdon and Associates, a higher education consulting firm, argues that the story of higher education since the early 1990s is heavily influenced by three key factors: changes in federal funding; changing demographics; and a penchant among some governments for neo-liberal market-based solutions. He explores the impact of government funding mechanisms and regulation on the post-secondary sector against that backdrop. He finds the situation less than ideal.
