Elementary and Secondary Schools in Canada
In Canada, provinces and territories are responsible for their elementary and secondary schools, both within and without their geographical borders. This page links, for each jurisdiction, to resources — maintained by the appropriate competent authorities — on domestic and offshore schools, and is intended, in particular, to help non-resident students and parents locate institutions that correspond to their needs and preferences.
Secondary Education in Canada: A Student Transfer Guide is a publication of the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada, (CMEC) that provides useful curricular information from Canada's 10 provinces and three territories, as well as information on the assessment of studies done out-of-province/territory and outside Canada (see Section 11). It should be used in conjunction with official documents, such as student transcripts, which may remain the best guide for determining the most appropriate course of studies for transfer students.
