Education in Canada

One of the first things you will do after coming to Canada is enrolling your children in school. Elementary and secondary education is publically funded in Canada and all children are required to attend. There are some alternative educational options, too.

Post-secondary education, on the other hand, is not publically funded. Whether your children — or you for that matter — decide to attend college or university, it’s a personal choice. You will be faced with many decisions, from what school and program to choose, to how you will pay for it.
