The British Columbia Ministry of Advanced Education launched the British Columbia Open Textbook Project in the fall of 2012. The goal of the project is to reduce the cost of higher education for students by promoting and developing openly licensed textbooks. To date, the province has provided $2 million dollars to help promote the use and development of open textbooks within the province of BC.
