Canadian Education Overview

Education in Canada is provided, funded and overseen by federal, provincial, and local governments - this means that public education is covered for Canadian Citizens. Education is within provincial jurisdiction and the curriculum is overseen by the province. Education in Canada is generally divided into Elementary (Primary School, Public School), followed by Secondary (High School) and Post Secondary (University, College). Within the provinces under the ministry of education, there are district school boards administering the educational programs. Canada generally has 190 school days in the year, officially starting from September (after Labour Day) to the end of June (usually the last Friday of the month, except in some cases in Quebec).

DId you know? According to an announcement of Canadian Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, Canada is introducing a new, fast-track system to let foreign students and graduates with Canadian work experience become permanent eligible residents in Canada.

Post-Secondary Education
After graduating from high school, many young adults continue their education through post-secondary education. Three general types of post-secondary education are available:

  • Formal training to prepare students for a skilled trade
  • Community college or CEGEP (Collège d'Enseignement Général et Professionnel), which offer one- to three-year long diploma programs in technical or academic subjects
  • University, which offers multi-year degree programs in arts, sciences, business, and other academic and professional fields
All post-secondary institutions charge tuition fees.

All children in Canada receive an education
In Canada, the government provides an education for every child free of charge. Public education is paid for through taxes and is administered by the provinces and territories in cooperation with local school boards. Depending on the province or territory, public education begins at age four or five. Children must continue to receive an education until age 15 or 16, according to the law in the province or territory in which the child lives. You can help your children learn by being aware of how education in Canada works.

Canada Student Loans and Grants
The Canada Student Loans Program and the Canada Student Grants Program help by providing student financial assistance in the form of loans and grants to Canadians attending post-secondary education in most provinces and territories.

The federal government’s student loans and grants make it easier for Canadian students and families to obtain a post-secondary education. Post-secondary education opens doors by providing better job opportunities. More Canadians are investing in their future by pursuing post-secondary education.
