The Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) is an organisation that represents Canada's colleges and universities.
Formed in 1911, it represents 95 public and private not-for-profit Canadian Universities and University Colleges in Canada. It provides member services in public policy and advocacy, communications, research and information-sharing, and scholarships and international programs.
Membership in AUCC along with a provincial charter to grant degrees is used as de facto accreditation in Canada. The association produces a number of publications, such as University Affairs magazine, Trends in Higher Education, UniWorld magazine, and the Directory of Canadian Universities. The Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada's Arms, Supporters and Badge were registered with the Canadian Heraldic Authority on May 10, 2004.

“This universal exhibition in Canada of the tools and sinews of war reminded me of the keeper of a menagerie showing his animals claws. It was the English leopard showing his claws.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“The fetish of the great university, of expensive colleges for young women, is too often simply a fetish. It is not based on a genuine desire for learning. Education today need not be sought at any great distance. It is largely compounded of two things, of a certain snobbishness on the part of parents, and of escape from home on the part of youth. And to those who must earn quickly it is often sheer waste of time. Very few colleges prepare their students for any special work.”
—Mary Roberts Rinehart (18761958)
“We hear a great deal of lamentation these days about writers having all taken themselves to the colleges and universities where they live decorously instead of going out and getting firsthand information about life. The fact is that anybody who has survived his childhood has enough information about life to last him the rest of his days.”
—Flannery OConnor (19251964)
“The aim of every political association is the preservation of the natural and imprescriptible rights of man. These rights are liberty, property, security and resistance to oppression.”
—French National Assembly. Declaration of the Rights of Man (drafted and discussed August 1789, published September 1791)
