The Canadian Alliance of Education and Training Organizations (CAETO)/Alliance canadienne des organismes d'éducation et de formation (ACOEF) is an incorporated, not-for-profit, "umbrella" association of national education and training organizations, that provides its members with opportunities to identify and build partnerships related to education and training policies and programs.

To this end, CAETO/ACOEF's activities include information sharing, networking and collaborative work among its members and with other education/ training stakeholders (e.g., governments, foundations and regional, national and international business/ labour/ community groups).

Two of CAETO's founding members, the Canadian Association of University Continuing Education (CAUCE) and the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC) also initiated the Advanced Essential Skills project
