This article is the result of a research which has been conducted for Higher Education Planning and the Research Committee of the Ministry of Culture and Higher Education of Iran. The article covers (1) The world's rapid development at the upcoming new century and the necessity of developing higher education plans, programs and activities; (2) The objectives and methods of investigating Canadian higher education experiences; (3) Policy making in the Canadian higher education and the problem of higher education; (4) The Canadian universities management boards and the process of decision-making in higher education; (5) The financial sources and expenses of higher education in Canada and the province of Ontario; (6) Faculty members of the universities and other higher education institutes; (7) Students of the university and other of higher education; (8) Evaluation of the university activities with regard to the evaluative indicator of higher education in Canada.
The results of this investigation indicate that the universities and institutions of higher education in the industrially well developed country of Canada arc, from a classical point of view, working appropriately, but many Canadian scholars and evaluation experts are not very satisfied in this concern. They believe that higher education in Canada needs continuous reevaluation and reconstruction. The accountability of higher education under the expanding technological, economical, social, and cultural life of the country is the most important criteria for evaluating higher education plans and programs. It is needed, therefore , to create suitable new policies for higher education activities. Also, what is important for us to learn from the experience of the provincial higher education activities in Canda is to compare our own national higher education with the advanced one in Canada and to think about the necessity of reconstructing and developing higher education activities in Iran.
