Public elementary and secondary education are free in Canada. As education is regulated at the provincial level, the ages of when children start/finish school vary across the provinces/territories, as does the curriculum taught in classrooms. According to The Government of Canada, by law all children must attend school. They typically start at the age of 5 or 6, depending on the province, and must continue until they are 16-18. ( Post secondary schools in Canada also fall under the responsibility of the individual provinces and territories. Therefore, the amount of funding they receive and the amount of tuition or other fees that they charge can vary by province to province. The only exception is the The Royal Military College of Canadan (RMC), which is the the military academy of the Canadian Forces and is the only federal institution in Canada with full degree-granting powers. Are you considering both public and private elementary education options for your child, a friend or family member? Are you considering post-secondary education? Do you have questions about the costs involved, and potential financial support available for various education options? Are you looking for information regarding specific curricula or certain subjects being taught in your child’s classroom? Or are you looking for tutoring or other education support? Education is important, and there are many options and resources available. Browse through Kinjunxion’s resources for information and support to answer your education questions.
