Canada Education System


Canada is one of the world’s top education performers, and is among the top 3 OECD countries in spending per capita on public postsecondary education. Students score higher on the international tests; this reflects the dedication each jurisdiction has on the quality of our education system. Canada’s high academic standards and rigorous quality controls results in a high-quality education that will open doors to a promising, long-term career and a brighter future. A Canadian degree, diploma or certificate is globally recognized as being equivalent to one obtained from the United States, or from any of the Commonwealth countries.

In Canada, post-secondary education is the responsibility of provincial and territorial governments, and in each province and territory there are laws, policies and procedures that govern the operation of post-secondary institutions. The basic structures of provincial and territorial education systems across Canada are similar. Each has 3 tiers — elementary, secondary, and postsecondary; all provide universal, free elementary and secondary schooling for Canadian students. 

Each jurisdiction has its own quality assurance mechanisms that are used in combination to ensure quality in the country’s wide range of post-secondary institutions (Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials, 2011). This ensures Canada’s academic credentials continue to be valued worldwide.

In order to find out what it takes to study abroad in Canada, students can easily follow a 3-step method. First, select a program or school that interests you. After that, find out how much it costs to study in Canada based on their selected choice. Next, find out what documents you need to study in that particular school or program, as well as what documents are required in order to study in Canada before applying. It is a great method to discover potential interests in fields of study, to find out what programs are available, and how the Canadian education system works. 

The quality of education and living standards in Canada are amongst the highest in the world, but the cost of living and tuition fees for international students are generally lower than in other countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom. As such, Canada is often the preferred choice for students attending college or university. One thing to be noticed is that Canadian and international tuition rates are provided by original institution sources. As tuition details are regularly updated, it is recommended that interested international students confirm them with their institution of interest.

Furthermore, Canada’s post-secondary campuses aren’t only wired with the latest in sophisticated technology, but countless other modern amenities as well. From Olympic-quality sports facilities to public concert halls and art galleries, Canada’s post-secondary campuses offer you enormous possibilities for learning and leisure. Plus, you’ll have incredible opportunities to meet like-minded individuals and gain valuable experience through student-run governments, radio, newspapers and businesses.
