Canadian Partnerships
Five Principles

How we can transform education together


Across Canada, rapid shifts in the labour market have shone a spotlight on the need for a highly educated workforce. A workforce that requires specific talents and skills in industries such as social services, business, healthcare, engineering, and STEM.

As a leading university, you’re uniquely positioned to help. You can solve this skills shortage crisis by developing comprehensive degree programs for fields facing significant job growth and have the potential to create economic and social impact. However, on-campus education can only reach so far.

Stretch beyond your campus walls to increase your impact with our help.

Following these five principles, we help you build successful online macro-credential programs. These programs remove online learning distance barriers and provide skills-based education and training through flexible, online, and asynchronous models.

What we do


We lead you on a data-informed research journey so that together we select the best online learning degrees that your university can offer. We then co-design these with your faculty to deliver the highest-quality, most engaging student experiences, from awareness to graduation. This includes any clinical and field placements for students across Canada.

Our locally-based teams work as an extension of your faculty and administration, so working with us feels seamless, supportive, and exciting. Plus, our Canadian team’s deep experience and relationships on the ground ensure the best outcomes for you and your students.

What our partners say

“Our partnership with Keypath has been a revelation. We are very new to the online degree world, and we simply didn’t know what the possibilities were, or how we needed to work in this space to be successful. We needed an OPM partner with significant experience in online degrees to guide us toward best practices, and to work closely and carefully with us as we adapted our internal systems and culture to pursue this strategic initiative.”

Since 2017, we’ve worked with some of Canada's leading universities including: 

  • uOttawa
  • Wilfrid Laurier University

The world is changing at a rapid pace and our universities are at the forefront of leading the shift toward the future of work. However, being limited to single intakes of on-campus degrees means each university can only impact so many people. Also, your faculty’s experience is precious and you only want to tackle this change with a team who understands you.

That’s where we come in. Our Canadian-based team will help you amplify your impact, expand your reach and advance student outcomes via data-driven online learning program selection, design, and delivery. 

We’ll be your partner in transforming your education so that, together, we can transform the world.
