B.C. to Lead Canada in Offering Students Free, Open Textbooks

British Columbia is set to become the first province in Canada to offer students free online, open textbooks for the 40 most popular post-secondary courses. Up to 200,000 B.C. students each year could benefit from this move under B.C.’s Families First Agenda, saving each student hundreds of dollars a year or more on textbooks – money that can go toward other learning supplies or living expenses.
